Important: Tdap Immunization Requirement for All 7th Graders

The Ohio Department of Health requires all students to show proof they have gotten a Tdap vaccine (Tetanus, diphtheria, acellular Pertussis vaccine) before starting 7th grade. Please provide your child’s Tdap immunization record to the school clinic by August 1, 2014 or prior to the first day of 7th grade at the latest. Students not in compliance with immunization laws must be excluded from school according to the guidelines of the Ohio Department of Health. Tdap vaccines may be administered by your child’s doctor or health department. To schedule an immunization appointment at the Butler County Health Department, please call 513-887-5253. Please contact Judy Lavash, School Nurse, if you have any questions: 513-360-0510 or
