7th and 12th GRADE IMMUNIZATION REMINDER

6th to 7th and 12th GRADE IMMUNIZATION REMINDER

All 6th grade students are required to have a Tdap and the first dose of Meningococcal (Meningitis) immunization before entering 7th grade.

A copy of your child’s up dated immunization record must be turned in to the front office at the Middle School the first day of school. Your child may receive immunizations from the Vinton County Health Department or your health care provider.

All 12th grade students are required to have 2 doses of Meningococcal (Meningitis) vaccine administered. The second dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday. If the first dose of Meningococcal vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.

A copy of your child’s up dated immunization record must be turned in to the front office at the High School the first day of school. Your child may receive immunizations from the Vinton County Health Department or your health care provider.

Please ask for a copy of your child’s up dated shot record or sign a release form before leaving the office. Many facilities will no longer fax immunizations records to schools, and now require that the parent/guardian sign a release form in person. Many facilities will no longer take phone calls from school nurses or parents/guardians requesting that immunization records be faxed.
