Vaccination Requirements for Incoming 7th and 12th Graders

The Ohio Revised Code requires that all Ohio 12th graders update their immunizations. Ohio School Vaccination Requirements include a booster shot of Meningitis vaccine 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 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.

Another option is Shots 4 Tot’s 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 appointment at  419-213-4121.
