Important Immunization Requirement Information for 6th graders going to the Junior Highs

Immunizations Requirements for all 6th graders

going into 7th grade in the Fall of 2021


Per the Ohio Department of Health, all students entering the 7th grade must provide documentation of receiving the Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccines before being allowed to enter junior high next year. You may send the record of receiving these immunizations to your School Nurse until the end of this school year.

The Nationwide Children's Hospital Mobile Clinic comes to either Harmon Middle School or Tussing Elementary on certain Wednesdays during the month. They are also in other areas on the east side for other days of the week. If your 6th grader still needs the required immunizations to enter 7th grade, they can be completed at the Mobile Clinic.

--See attached flyer for the contact information to set up an appointment if needed.

If you have any questions, please contact your School Nurse.
