Dear Parents and Guardians of current 11th graders,
Immunizations are an important part of public health and keeping your child healthy and safe from life-threatening diseases. It is time to begin planning for the upcoming school year. Ohio school law has changed the immunization requirements for current 11th grade students before starting the 2018-2019 school year for the following: Meningococcal (A, C, Y, W-135) vaccine (to protect from Meningitis)
• If your student received a Meningitis (A, C, Y, W-135) vaccine before the age of 16 years, a second dose is
required for school attendance beginning in the fall of 2018 If your student will be receiving the first dose of Meningitis (A, C, Y, W-135) vaccine and is now 16 years of age or older, only one dose is required for school attendance beginning in the fall of 2018
Any current 11th grade student who has not had the immunization listed above before the start of the 2018-2019 school year, will not be permitted to attend school until proof of the immunizations has been received. If your child is unable to receive this immunization due to a medical reason, your doctor must state so in writing. Please plan ahead and schedule your child's vaccination appointment as soon as possible. You may see your child's pediatrician or primary care provider to receive the vaccination. The Clermont County General Health District will also be offering the vaccinations in their clinic with a scheduled appointment. To schedule an appointment with the Health Department location, please call (513) 735-8400. The Health Department central office is located at 2400 Clermont Center Drive (Suite #200) Batavia OHIO 45103. Please feel free to call Edie Strine at 732-2341 with any additional questions or problems. You may begin submitting the updated immunization record at this time. Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to the requirement.
Deadline is October 1st. Any senior without this shot will not be allowed to attend school.
