Immunization Letter

Hello All,

I want to introduce myself, my name is Nancy Anne Teems, the Director of Health/School Nurse at Maclay. We are excited to have your children join us this summer. We are working extremely hard to ensure that we are meeting and exceeding the CDC guidelines and recommendations for summer camp in a school setting. I will be working the camp this summer and will possibly have an interaction with your child. You are receiving this email because a few requirements have changed with the current environment and COVID. I will need a copy of your child's immunization records to ensure that they are in compliance with the most current immunizations. This email is referring to any children that were not enrolled at Maclay for the 2019-2020 school year.

Below is the Immunization schedule requirements. Many Doctor offices are sending records via email if you call. You will be receiving an additional email that will include a medical history/release form. Both the Immunization record and medical history/release will need to be completed and returned to me via email prior to the start of your camper's week. I am here to work along side of you to make this a positive and healthy experience for your child and family. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

The fax number for your physician’s office to send immunizations is 850-893-7434, this is Maclay's main fax number. Please have them put attention Nancy Anne Teems, Maclay Summer Camp.

There is also a clinic card that needs to be filled out by the parent. This can be found on the main website. You will also get in the welcome letter. We will need this form prior to the start of camp in order for me to identify our at-risk population easily and prior to being on campus. The team is devoted to providing a safe, positive, and healthy summer camp for your children.
