If your student has received any vaccines this school year, feel free to send a copy or screenshot to your child’s nurse so that we can have it on file. You can email it to for the Senior Campus, or for the Ninth Grade Campus.

If you have a graduating senior or plan to move over the summer, please be sure to request a copy of their vaccine record to be picked up by your student or emailed to you no later than May 25th. We will not be able to fulfill requests made during the summer, and only clinic staff have access to those records.

Colleges and universities require a second dose of the Meningitis (MCV4) vaccine that is received on or after the 16th birthday, since the first dose is only effective for five years. You may also want to discuss the Meningitis B vaccine with your doctor. That is a newer vaccine that is available to children ages 16-18, and it protects against an additional strain of the meningococcal virus.
