New Immunization Requirements for all 7th and 12th grade students:
The Ohio Department of Health has new requirements: incoming 7th grade students must have a tdap booster and meningitis vaccine (mcv4) by the first day of school and incoming 12th grade students must have 2 doses of meningitis vaccine (mcv4) by the first day of school **if your child received this vaccine on or after their 16th birthday, a second dose will not be required.
Please be sure to discuss this with your child’s pediatrician to determine what vaccines will be needed before the start of the school year. An updated immunization record must be provided to the clinic before the 1st day of school with the required vaccines. If records are not received by 14 days after the child begins school, they will be exempt from returning per Board Policy until the proper documentation is received.
Please contact Mrs. Palmer in the Clinic if you have any questions or concerns. Immunization records can be faxed to the school at the number shown above once the vaccines are completed.
