    7th Grade Immunization Requirements

    The Ohio Department of Health now has two immunization requirements for 7th grade students.  In addition to the Tdap(Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussia vaccine, students are now required to have a Meningococcal vaccine.  Meningitis is a vaccine preventable disease that is on the rise in teens and college dormitories.  Your child may have already had these shots.  Check with your healthcare provider for current immunization  status.  If your child still needs to be immunized, make an appointment with your healthcare provider or the Preble County General Health District Immunization Clinic.  The PCGHD clinic is held every Monday (except holidays) from 9:00-11:00am and 3:00-5:00pm.  Please call (937) 472-0087 to schedule an appointment.  

    **Documentation of receiving these vaccines will be required to begin 7th grade and avoid exclusion.
