IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS ENTERING 7 GRADE IN 2015-2016
IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS
FOR STUDENTS ENTERING 7TH GRADE IN 2015-2016
Dear Parents of Current 6th Grade Students:
Per the Ohio Department of Health, all 7th graders must show documentation of receiving a Tdap
immunization before being allowed to enter school next year.
Previously, Pertussis (the “P” in the immunization) had not been required after the age of 7. Due to an
increase in outbreaks of Pertussis (also known as Whooping Cough) the Department of Health has
decided that a booster is needed.
You may take this letter with you to your doctor to use as documentation of this vaccination, or you
may submit an immunization report with the dates of this Tdap vaccination. Please return this
documentation as soon as possible to your child’s school nurse. If this is not provided during the 6th
grade school year, you will need to send this information to the Junior High that your child will attend,
prior to the beginning of next school year. The middle school nurses will forward on all immunization
documentation received to the junior high nurses at the end of this year.
Please call your school’s School Nurse or our School Health Coordinator with any questions:
