The Texarkana Independent School District reminds all incoming 7th-grade students need to have the following three additional immunizations before the first day of school in August 2020.

TDaP (Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis) Vaccine - 1 Dose
Meningococcal Vaccine - 1 Dose
Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine - 1 Dose

HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) - recommended for this age, but is not a requirement for school attendance.

If your child has already received these immunizations, please send an updated copy of the shot record to the Texas Middle School Health Office. If not, please make arrangements with your physician to have your child immunized as soon as possible.

If you meet the requirements for the Vaccines for Children Program, you may be eligible to receive the vaccinations at the Bowie County Health Clinic or Tiger Clinic at Texas Middle School. To find out if you meet these requirements, contact Bowie County Health Clinic at (903)-798-3250 or the Tiger Clinic at (903)-792-6594.

TISD appreciates your assistance in seeing that your student's immunizations are updated. For questions, please contact Heather Spohn, RN at 903.793.5631 ext. 76516.
