Updated Requirements of Immunizations


Dear Fort Recovery Community,

 

The State of Ohio now has updated requirements of immunizations for your 7th-12th grade student.  Beginning this school year, students entering 7th grade will need to have one dose of meningococcal (serogroups A, C, W and Y) vaccine in addition to the current requirement of having one dose of the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) vaccine.

 

Students entering the 12th grade will need to have a second dose of meningococcal vaccine. The second dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday. If the first dose of meningococcal vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.
