I have a child who will be only 10 when he/she enters 6th grade. Should he/she receive...

  • the MCV4 and Tdap before 6th grade like the other students or wait until he/she is 11?

    Yes. The student should receive the Tdap and MCV4 prior to entering 6th grade. Indiana’s school immunization requirements are grade-based and not age based. A dose of Tdap and MCV4 will count towards the adolescent requirements if given at age 10 or older.
