Are your children's immunizations up-to-date? Immunizations are especially important during back to school time and are still being required for school attendance. The State of Ohio has mandated the following vaccinations for students entering 7th-12th grade.
For grades 7-12, the State requires one dose of Tdap- a booster for diptheria, tetanus, and pertussis.
For students entering 7th grade, one dose of meningococcal vaccine must be administered prior to entry.
For students entering 12th grade, two doses of meningococcal must be administered prior to entry, unless the first dose was after the 16th birthday.
If your student still needs these vaccinations please schedule an appointment with your child’s primary care provider to receive these vaccinations prior to the beginning of the school year.
If your student has already had these vaccinations, an up-to-date record can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org to update your students file.
