Immunization Information and Requirements for 2021-22

Immunization Information and Requirements for 2021-22

Just a reminder: Students in Kindergarten, 7th, and 12th have required immunizations before they return to school on August 18th to avoid exclusion from school. Please bring documentation of your child's completed immunizations to the open-house on August 16th to give to the school nurse.

Pre-School: If you have not provided the school with your child’s shot record, please do so. If you are uncertain whether your child is up-to-date on immunizations, please contact your child’s healthcare provider.

Kindergarten: Typically, children entering Kindergarten need to have vaccinations prior to starting school. Please make certain that your child’s shot record is up-to-date and a copy is provided to your child’s school. If you have questions about immunizations, please contact your child’s healthcare provider.

7th grade: Incoming 7th graders are required by law to have Tdap and meningitis vaccines. Please make certain that your child has received these vaccines and an updated copy of your child’s shot record is provided to your child’s school. Vaccines may be obtained from your child’s healthcare provider, the Scioto County Health Department, the Portsmouth City Health Department, or Kroger, Walmart and CVS Pharmacies.

12th Grade: Incoming 12th graders are required by law to have a meningitis vaccine after age 16. Please make certain that your child has received this and an updated copy of your child’s shot record is provided to your child’s school. Vaccines may be obtained from your child’s healthcare provider, the Scioto County Health Department, the Portsmouth City Health Department, or Kroger, Walmart and CVS Pharmacies. At this time, the Northwest Family Healthcare Center is only able to give vaccines to those students with private insurance coverage.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse.
