Vaccine required for incoming 7th & 12th graders
The Ohio Department of Health is requiring two (2) doses of the Meningococcal (MCV4) Vaccine to be administered before a student enters 12th grade. If the first dose was administered on or after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required. The incoming 12th graders will need to show proof of having received the Meningococcal (MCV4) Vaccine (s) when they return to school in August.
Also, one dose of the Meningococcal (MCV4) Vaccine AND the Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis booster (Tdap) needs to be administered to the incoming 7th graders before they enter school.
Please call the clinic at your son/daughter's school if you have any questions.
