Immunization Requirement for Students Entering 7th Grade

    The Ohio Department of Health requires a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) Booster immunization prior to entry into seventh (7th) grade. As with other school immunization requirements, Section 3313.671 of the Ohio Revised Code states that students who do not provide documentation of this immunization are subject to exclusion from school.


    Please have the Certification of Immunization form completed by your health care provider when your student receives this immunization. Verification of the immunization must be sent to school using this form or other appropriate documentation (i.e. copy of immunization record).  For more information you may call 440-846-4137 or the Ohio Department of Health Immunization Program Hotline at 800-282-0546.
