Rising 7th Grade Students
Georgia's immunization requirements for children attending 7th grade have been revised to align with the current recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
All students born on or after January 1, 2002 and entering, advancing, or transferring into 7th grade in Georgia must have:
Proof of an adolescent pertussis (whooping cough) booster vaccination.
Proof of an adolescent meningococcal (meningitis) vaccination.
