Vaccination laws require all 7th grade
students to have the following vaccines:
7th Grade Immunization Information
One (1) dose of Tdap – a vaccine which protects against whooping cough
One (1) dose of Meningococcal (MCV4) – a vaccine which protects against bacterial meningitis. A second dose of this vaccine will be required at 12th grade.
As with other school immunization requirements, students who
do not provide documentation of these immunizations are subject to exclusion
from school. Parents must provide the school with the documentation by the
first day of the school year.
Please contact your child’s health care provider to make the necessary appointment to obtain these vaccines. If your child has received these vaccines, please submit the documentation to the school as soon as possible. If your child does not have a doctor or if you are unable to
obtain an appointment with your provider, the Licking County Health Department
offers ongoing vaccination clinics with a variety of hours and locations.
Please visit their website www.lickingcohealth.org or call at
740-349-6535 for more information regarding these clinics. You can also obtain
these vaccines at local store-based clinics.
