Important Immunization Changes for ALL Students for 2017-18
For the start of the 2017-18 school year there have been some important changes to immunization requirements for school:
- ALL students entering 12th grade will be required to receive a 2nd MCV (meningitis) vaccine.
- ALL students are required to have 4 doses of polio vaccine (4th dose must be on or after 4th birthday). Most students have received this vaccine, but some have not.
- Proof of vaccination must be provided within the first 5 days of school (August 30th) or risk exclusion for all grade levels.
All student immunization records are being audited and letters will be sent out very soon with more information. Please do not wait to have this updated. Students will be excluded if this is not completed before school starts. Please feel free to contact your school nurse with any questions.
