Important 7th Grade Immunization Rules

Dear parents of entering 7th grade students:

Per the Ohio Department of Health, all 7th graders must show documentation of receiving the Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4) immunizations before being allowed to enter classes during the 2019-20 school year.

You print out and take a copy of the letter (found at the link at the bottom of this article) with you to your doctor to use as documentation of these vaccinations, or you may submit an immunization report with the dates of both vaccinations. This link also contains flyers with information on clinics you may consider to obtain the required vaccinations. It also includes a school immunization summary for attendance in Ohio by grade level.

Please return this documentation as soon as possible to your child’s school nurse. If this is not provided during the 6th grade school year, you will need to send this information to the junior high that your child will attend prior to the beginning of next school year. The middle school nurses will forward on all immunization documentation received to the junior high nurses at the end of this year.

School Nurse or our School Health Supervisor contact information is listed on the letter, so please give them a call if you have any questions.

Here’s the link to the letter, clinic information and school immunization summary:
