New Incoming 12th Grade Vaccination Requirements

Families of Current 11th Grade Students

The Ohio Department of Health requires all students entering 12th grade to have two Meningococcal vaccinations before the first day of school. There are two exceptions to this law. Only one shot is required if the student is age 16 or older when receiving the vaccine for the first time or if the student is 15 or younger when attending 12th grade. Your student must receive the vaccine prior to the first day of school.  Kettering City Schools is requesting that parents and guardians of current 11th grade students provide written documentation of their student's Meningococcal vaccination by no later than Thursday, March 31, 2016.  Written documentation must be turned in to the school nurse prior to the start of the 2016-17 school year or students will be excluded from school and district sports programs.

Don't wait!!!!  If your student is currently in 11th grade, the school nurses urge you to make an appointment now with your doctor or the public health department to have your student vaccinated.  Immunizations are available with an appointment at Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County at 937-225-4550.  Please contact the school nurse if you have questions:
