• New Immunization Requirements for 7th  and 12th Grade Students in the 2016-2017 School Year
     
    7th Grade Students
     
    Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, the Ohio Department of Health School Immunization Requirements have been revised to include one (1) dose of Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine to be administered before a student enters the seventh grade.  
     
    Your child also requires a dose of Tdap to be administered before entering the seventh grade.  This dose is intended to be administered as a booster dose for students who have completed the required doses of the initial series of DTaP/DT/Td. 
     
    If your child received one (1) dose of Tdap as part of the original series, another dose of Tdap will not be required.  The Tdap can be given regardless of the interval since the last tetanus or diptheria-toxoid containing vaccine. 
     
    12th Grade Students 
     
    Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, the Ohio Department of Health School Immunization Requirements have been revised to include two (2) doses of Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine to be administered before a student enters the 12th grade. 
     
    If the first dose of MCV4 was administered on or after the 16th birthday a second dose is not required.  If a pupil is in the 12th grade and is 15 years of age or younger, only one (1) dose is required.
