BE PREPARED FOR THE START OF 7TH GRADE
CHECK VACCINE RECORDS NOW
Before the start of the 2015-16 school year, make sure your incoming 7th grade students are ready. Vaccines required for 7th grade entry (California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 17, Section 6020) include:
1-Tdap booster given after age 7 years
2-MMR’s-most given prior to Kindergarten although some have missed 2nd dose
Other vaccines encouraged--Not required--by the Department of Health include; meningococcal and HPV vaccines.
To avoid the back to school rush, make appointments with your healthcare provider now. Spring break is a great time to review records and make appointments for immunization updates.

In just about any dresser drawer, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life. Imagine if you could help a child read. An adult succeed in his job. A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive. The Benicia Lions Club is collecting eyeglasses which are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact. They have generously given us a donation box for our front office for used eyeglasses you no longer need. Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and plastic and metal frames. Children's glasses are especially needed.
