Vaccinations Required for Incoming Seveth Graders/Seniors before School Starts
Immunization requirements have changed, requiring that all incoming seventh graders and seniors receive immunizations before school starts Thursday, August 17, 2017.

They are now required by Ohio school law to show proof of the following immunizations BEFORE the first day of school. They are:

Seventh grade
•TDaP vaccine (to protect against Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis)
• Meningococcal (A, C, Y, W-135) vaccine (to protect against Meningitis)


Seniors
• Meningococcal (A, C, Y, W-135) vaccine (to protect against Meningitis)

Students who do not receive required vaccinations will not be permitted to attend school until proof of these immunizations, or alternative requirements according to Ohio Revised Code section 3313.67, have been received by the school.

Both the required TDaP and Meningitis (A, C, Y, W-135) shots can be obtained from now until the first day of school. Contact your Primary Care Physician, local pharmacy, urgent care center, or the Stark County Health Department (330-493-9914) for an appointment.

When they are obtained, provide a copy of your child’s shot record, with vaccination dates, to the Lake Middle School or Lake High School main office after August 1, 2017 so your student’s record can be updated.

Note exception: A pupil who presents a written statement of the pupil's parent or guardian in which the parent or guardian declines to have the pupil immunized for reasons of conscience, including religious convictions, is not required to be immunized. Ohio Revised Code section 3313.67.

Please contact School Nurse Therese Gilbert, BSN, RN, LSN, via e-mail at [email protected] with questions, or call her at 330-877-4762.
