All students grades 7 - 12 are now required, by the state of Ohio, to have the meningococcal vaccine prior to the first day of school. If a student has had a dose previously, but it was before their 16th birthday, they are required to have a second dose. Please be sure your student brings in a copy of this immunization on the first day of school and gives it to their homeroom teacher. If they still need to get this immunization you can do one of the following 3 options:
1: Call your doctor office and schedule an appointment
2: Call your county health department which will do these free of cost if you meet their guidelines.
3: Go to the Pharmacy at the Rite Aid in Minerva, they are administering these vaccines and they will bill your insurance company.
If you have any questions please contact school nurse Olivia Scott at 330-868-4011 ext. 2
