There are specific vaccine requirements for current 7th and 12th grade students per ORC 3313.671. Students must present proof of required vaccinations in order to remain in school.
All students entering 7th grade are required to have one dose of the meningococcal ACWY vaccine (also known as MCV4, Menveo, or Menactra) and one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis).
All students entering the 12th grade will be required to have a second dose of the meningococcal ACWY vaccine prior to entry. If the first dose of MCV4 was administered on or after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.
The Portage County Health District will be at the JR/SR High School on Friday, September 21 at 9:30 AM administering scheduled vaccinations. You must schedule an appointment in order to receive the vaccination on this day. If you would like to receive vaccines at the clinic, contact Beth Green at 330-326-2711 ext. 541.
