2019/2020 Immunization Requirements

Dear Families of Students at Sycamore Community Schools,

We are reaching out to make sure that you are aware of the immunization requirements for students entering 12th grade for the 2019/2020 school year. In Ohio, the following vaccines are required by law:

- Current 12th-grade students must have (2) doses of MCV4 (unless the initial dose was given on or after the 16th birthday).

We strongly encourage you to check with your physician to verify that your child is up-to-date on immunizations now and to schedule an appointment as early as possible if your child’s vaccine status needs to be updated.

Once your child has received the necessary immunizations, please give a forward a copy of the documentation to:

Jennifer Ferris, School Nurse at Sycamore High School.

For more information about Ohio’s required school vaccinations or waiver options, please refer to the following link: https://odh.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/odh/know-our-programs/Immunization/Required-Vaccines-Child-Care-School/Required-Vaccines-Child-Care-School .

We appreciate your prompt attention to this matter.
