12th grade immunization

Posted on: August 30, 2017


The Ohio Department of Health has released the immunization requirements for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.  Seniors (12th graders) will be required to have two MCV4 (Meningococcal serogroup A, C, W, and Y) vaccines before entering 12th grade. If the student had one MCV4 on or after his/her 16th birthday, the student does NOT need a second dose.  At the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year, students who do not have the required immunizations will be excluded after the fourteenth day of school per Ohio law.   Please contact your School Nurse for more information and send in your updated shot record as soon as possible.  http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/vis-statements/mening.pdf
