The State of Ohio has changed the immunization requirements for 7th and 12th grade students. These changes are in effect beginning with the 2016-2017 school year.
Please contact your child's pediatrician or your local health department as soon as possible, as proof of these immunizations is required for school attendance, and an updated immunization record needs to be received by the school nurse by the first day of the 16/17 school year.
7th grade: Tdap vaccine (to protect from Tetanus, Diphtheria & Pertussis) and Meningococcal vaccine (to protect from Meningitis)
12th grade: Meningococcal vaccine (to protect from Meningitis)
If student received a Meningitis vaccine before the age of 16 years, a second dose is required for school attendance in 12th grade. If student received the first dose of Meningitis vaccine at the age of 16 years or older, only one dose is required for school attendance in 12th grade.
Please forward updated immunization records to school nurse, Jennifer Wygle, RN BSN.
