Did you know that the Ohio Department of Health has immunization requirements for students
entering Kindergarten through 12th grade?
entering the 7th grade are required to receive the Meningococcal vaccine to
protect them from Meningitis, as well as a Tdap vaccine to protect them from
Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis. Students entering 12th grade are also
required to receive a Meningococcal vaccine prior to the new year start.
Children can begin receiving vaccinations required to enter kindergarten any time after their 4th birthday.
You can get these vaccines from your medical provider or call the Lorain County Public Health Department at 440-284-3206 to schedule an appointment.
Please contact Mrs. Loper, district nurse, if you have any questions.
