New Immunization Requirements for 2010-2011 School Year
All incoming kindergarten students will require:
- Varicella (chickenpox)- two doses
- Polio-4 doses of any combination of OPV or IPV, the last dose must be given on or after the 4th birthday, regardless of the number of previous doses.
- 5 doses- DTaP
- 2 doses- MMR
- 3 doses- HEP B
- Bold print = new requirements
- Documentation must be provided before school starts in the fall.
All incoming 7th grade students will need a Tdap booster (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) prior to the start of the school year. Please schedule an appointment with your doctor or with the Miami County Health Department Immunization Clinic. Please provide documentation that your son/daughter has received this vaccine before school starts in the fall. This is a state requirement and your child may be excluded from school.
If your child has received Td or Tdap for an injury or other reason within 5 years of entering 7th grade then this will meet the requirement and your child will not need to be re-immunized for entry to 7th grade. You will need to provide documentation to the school.
