Re: New school meningococcal immunization requirements
With the start of the 2016-2017 school year, Ohio will be faced with new meningococcal vaccine requirements for students entering 7th and 12th grades.
Students entering 7th grade will need to have one dose of meningococcal (serogroups A, C, W and Y) vaccine in addition to the current requirement of having one dose of the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) vaccine.
Students entering the 12th grade will need to have a second dose of meningococcal vaccine. The second dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday. If the first dose of meningococcal vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required. [So - this year's 12th graders will need only one does prior to the start of the school year.]

Important Notice for next year’s
7th & 12th Grade Students
In an effort to boost meningitis protection for young Ohioans, state lawmakers have added the meningococcal vaccine to a list of shots “required” for schoolchildren.
The law will take effect for the 2016-2017 school year. One vaccination is required prior to start of 7th grade (along with the Tdap vaccination) and the second is required prior to start of 12th grade. There is no grace period.
Next year’s seniors must have one vaccination prior to the start of the school year. Please make an appointment now as it becomes very difficult to get in before school.
Bacterial meningitis, which can inflame the lining of the brain and the spinal cord and lead to blood infection, can be deadly, and it moves with speed.
Letters will be sent home to all students who do not have these immunizations on file with the school nurse.
