IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR 7TH GRADE AND 12TH GRADE 2019-2020!
The Ohio Department of Health has revised the immunization requirements for the 2019-2020 school year. All students entering the 7th grade are required to have one dose of Meningococcal vaccine and one dose of Tdap ( Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis) prior to the start of school. In addition all students entering the 12th grade are required to have 2 doses of Meningococcal vaccine prior to the start of school. However, if the student received their first dose after their 16th birthday then just one dose of Meningococcal is required. You may obtain the Meningococcal and the Tdap vaccines from your health care provider or the Cuyahoga County Board of Health at 216-201-2041. Please consider the new guidelines when scheduling your child's next medical appointment.
