Re:           New school meningococcal immunization requirements 

Ohio are required to have specific vaccinations prior to entering the 7th and 12th grades. 

Students entering 7th grade will need to have one dose of meningococcal (serogroups A, C, W and Y) vaccine and 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, but most colleges will require the second dose. 

For more information on the meningococcal vaccine:

Important Notice for 

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 took effect beginning with 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.  For incoming 12th graders, this shot can be received after turning age 16 but prior to 12th grade.

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.


Prevention and Control of Seasonal Influenza

Recommendations of the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices—United States, 2016-17 Influenza Season CDC recommends that everyone aged 6 months or older receive an influenza vaccine every year by the end of October if possible. One big change for the 2016-2017 season is that only injectable vaccines are being recommended. The nasal spray is not recommended this year due to concerns about past effectiveness. There are many varieties of vaccine available.

If you are allergic to eggs, it’s possible that you may need a vaccine called Flublok or Flucelvax. Contrary to what you may have heard, you are able to get vaccinated. If you are over age 65, you may benefit from Fluzone High-Dose. It’s intended to create a stronger immune response and is more effective. If you are worried about the needle,
