ATTENTION: Parents of 6th Grade Students

All 6th grade students need to have a Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) and MCV4 (Meningococcal) vaccine before entering the 7th grade in the fall. This is a requirement of the Ohio Department of Health. The immunizations can be obtained at your physician’s office or at the Williams County Health Department. Please call ahead to make an appointment. The Health Department accepts medicaid and private health insurances, and no one is denied service for inability to pay.

After receiving the Tdap and MCV4 vaccine please send a copy of the updated immunization record to the school office. For questions or concerns call 419-633-6233.

ATTENTION: Parents of 11th Grade Students

All 11th grade students need to receive the meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) before entering the 12th grade. This is a requirement of the Ohio Department of Health. If your student received the first dose of the meningitis vaccine before they were 16, a second dose is required. If your student received a dose of MCV4 on or after their 16th birthday, they meet the requirement for school and do not need another dose. The immunization can be obtained at your physician’s office or the Williams County Health Department. Please call ahead to make an appointment. Medicaid and private health insurances are accepted at the Health Department, and no one is denied service for inability to pay.

After receiving the MCV4 vaccine please send a copy of the updated immunization record to the school office. For questions or concerns call 419-633-6233.

The State of Ohio requires all students have these vaccines before entering the 7th and 12th grades. Therefore, your child will not be allowed to attend school without a record of it.
