Updated Vaccine Requirements for Ohio Students
Posted on: 04/04/2016
We would like our patients and parents to be aware of the updated vaccine requirements for Ohio students entering the 7th and 12th grade in the fall of 2016.
If your child is entering the 7th grade this fall, they will need a Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) vaccine and a meningococcal (Meningitis) vaccine.
If your child is entering the 12th grade this fall, they may require a second meningococcal vaccine if they received their first vaccine before age 16. This would apply to most students as they usually receive their first vaccine around age 11 and/or when entering the 7th grade.
Please call our office at 513.232.8100 and our staff will be happy to assist you in determining if your child needs any of the required vaccines before the 2016-2017 school year.Back to article
