Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, all students born on or after January 1, 2002, and entering or transferring into seventh grade in Georgia, must receive a tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough) booster vaccination (Tdap) and an adolescent meningococcal vaccination (MCV4). The same applies for any students new to Georgia who are entering grades eight through twelve. This law affects all public and private schools including charter schools, community schools, juvenile court schools and other alternative school settings (excluding homeschool).
