High School Immunization Requirements

Posted on: May 22, 2017

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.  

When school resumes in August, students who do not have these required immunizations may attend school for a period of 15 days. Proof of immunization must be provided by September 6, 2017 or Ohio law mandates that your child be excluded from school until such record is provided.  

The Warren County Health District plans to hold a Saturday Immunization Clinic on July 22. Families can call the health district at 513-695-1468 to schedule an appointment.

Immunization appointments are also available Monday through Friday throughout the year. In order to avoid the back to school rush prior to the start of the school year, we encourage families to call early and schedule their appointment for immunizations. Families can also check the Health Department  website at www.wcchd.com for updates on additional Saturday clinics.
