Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, students entering the 7th grade are required to have MCV4 (meningococcal- serogroup A, C, W, and Y).
As in the past, 7th grade students are required to have documentation of a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis).
This means that those students who are currently in 6th grade, will have to be vaccinated with both vaccines before the beginning of school in the fall. Any student not submitting documentation of these vaccines may be excluded from school.
To have your child vaccinated, call and schedule an appointment with your primary care physician or call the Preble County General Health District Immunization Clinic. The PCGHD Immunization Clinic is held every Monday (except holidays) from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. Please contact the PCGHD at 937-472-0087 ext. 226 to schedule an appointment or for additional information.
