2022/23 Seventh Grade Vaccination Requirements

Posted on: September 7, 2022

The Ohio Department of Health has revised the School Immunization Requirements effective January 4, 2010. All students are to receive an additional dose of Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) vaccine BEFORE entering the seventh grade. If your child has received a Tdap vaccine within 5 years of entering the seventh grade this will meet the requirement.

Additionally, one dose of meningococcal (serogroup A, C, W, and Y) vaccine is required prior to entry into the 7th grade.

If opting out of the vaccine for medical, religious, or good cause, the exemption form is available by request.

 There are various ways you may obtain this immunization:

*Your private physician

*Warren County Health Department 416 S East State Street, Lebanon, OH 45036, 513-695-1228

*Pharmacy and store walk in clinics
