Important Vaccination Alert for Incoming 7th Graders & 12th Graders 

From the Desk of Julie Zaborowski, RN, BSN, Health Coordinator, St. John’s Jesuit 

 
The Ohio Revised Code requires that all incoming 12th graders update their immunizations prior to the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Ohio School Vaccination Requirements include a booster shot of Meningitis vaccine (McV4) for all children entering the 12th grade.  The law also requires that all Ohio 7th graders update their immunizations. They must have 1 dose of Tdap and 1 dose of Meningitis prior to the beginning of 7th grade. This creates a busy time for physicians’ offices. If possible, set up your appointment prior to August!

You will need to provide SJJ a copy of these records which may be submitted any time before next school year. The dates will also need to be placed in PowerSchool. Please note another option is Shots 4 Tots N Teens, a walk-in immunization clinic for children from birth-18 years. Clinics are available 12 months of the year. Visit lucascountyhealth.com or call to set up an appt. 419-213-4121.
