Vaccinations Needed For Students (Grades K, 7, 12)
Parents and Guardians,
Please make certain your child has had the following vaccinations and doses prior to the start of the 2016-17 school year.
If your child is going into kindergarten they will need the following vaccinations / total doses during their life time:
Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis: 5 doses
Polio: 4 doses
Hepatitis B: 3 doses
Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella (Chicken Pox): 2 Doses
If your child is going into 7th grade:
New for this year: The state is requiring one dose of Meningococcal Vaccine.
As in previous years, incoming 7th graders will also need a Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) booster. Tdap is the preferred booster because it provides vital protection against pertussis, which is commonly known as "whooping cough."
If your child is going into 12th grade:
New for this year: Two doses of Meningococcal Vaccine are required prior to the entrance of 12th grade. Only one dose is required if given on or after the 16th birthday.
If you have any questions, please contact our district nurse, Mrs. Brickey by email. You can also get immunization information at the Ohio Department of Education's website.
