Immunization Requirements for 2017-18
IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR
ALL STUDENTS ENTERING SEVENTH GRADE
This is just a reminder that the Ohio Department of Health, Sections 3701.13 of the Ohio Revised Code, has made the following change for all students entering the 7th grade. The addition of a Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) vaccine booster shall be required prior to entry into the 7thgrade. Important note: a Td only (Tetanus and diphtheria adult) will not be accepted – it must be a Tdap. 7th Graders will also need a meningoccal (meningitis) vaccine. Meningitis is a vaccine preventable disease that can lead to neurological issues, seizures, or death. They will also need a meningococcal booster after age 16. Students entering 7th grade will be state required to receive BOTH a Tdap booster and a meningococcal vaccine. Documentation will be needed in the school office prior to the beginning of the school year to avoid exclusions.
12th Graders will also be required to have a meningococcal (meningitis) vaccine. The state is now requiring this vaccine to begin senior year. Documentation will be needed in the school office prior to the beginning of the school year to avoid exclusions.
As with other school immunization requirements, students who do not provide documentation of this immunization prior to the first day of school are subject to exclusion from school. As the immunization is obtained, please return verification to the school nurse so that your child's school health records can be updated. You may send the updated immunization record to the school during the summer break or drop it off at the Board of Education.
This required vaccination could be obtained from your doctor or through the Ottawa County Health Department. You may contact the Ottawa County Health Department toll free at 1-800-788-8803 for an appointment.
