Immunization Requirements for Class of 2019

Posted on: January 23, 2018

Attention 11th grade Parents/Guardians:

The Ohio Department of Health requires immunization with the Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine before entry to 12th grade. Your student may have already received one dose of this vaccine, a second dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday. If the first dose of meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.  If your student has not had these immunizations, please make arrangements for them to receive them as soon as possible.  

Proof of immunization from a Physician’s Office or Immunization Clinic where they received the vaccination(s) is required.  Please send proof of immunization to the High School office or nursing office.

When school resumes in August, students who do not have these required immunizations may attend school for a period of 14 days.  After 14 days, Ohio law mandates that your child be excluded from school until such record is provided. Proof of immunization must be provided by September 4, 2018, or your child be excluded from school until such record is provided.  It is not our desire that any student be removed from school.  However, for your child’s safety and the well being of all students, it is necessary that we have your full cooperation in this matter.  

Please contact your family physician or the Warren County Health Department at 695-1468 to arrange for your child to receive these required immunizations. This immunization is also available at area clinics and pharmacies.  If you have any questions concerning your child’s immunizations, please contact the school nurse at Lebanon High School at 934-5115 or the Health Department at 695-1468.
