 I got this notice in my 10 yr olds note from school yesterday.

It is stating that all 11 yr olds must get the meningoccal and TdaP shot before the next school year 2009-2010.

I will need to look at her shot records and se if she has had this already.

Has anyone else gotten this from their schools this year?

These are probably boosters.  Here those are required before entering jr. high.

They are doing that here too because of several recent outbreaks and three deaths.

Hep B has been in the shot records for a "few" years now. Seems that there was a big outbreak 12 odd years ago in the area where my son was in daycare and a couple years after that it was on the shot record.

Yes, the Meningetis shot is new and the Tdap is just the booster shor for the tetnus, Pertussis and diptheria shot. My son is going into 8th grade and has already gotten his (I have gotten the Tdap because I haven't had a tetnus in 10 years). It is required for kids entering middle school or high school.
