Reminder for Parents: Additional Shot Requirements
Additional school shots will be required for the 2012-2013 school year.
• 7th Graders must show proof of a booster dose of Tdap vaccine which protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) and a dose of MCV4 (meningitis) vaccine.
• 12th Graders also must show proof of a single dose of Tdap, plus a booster dose of the meningitis vaccine. If your child will be turning 16 before school starts, they must get the meningitis vaccine booster in order to go to the 12th grade.
Your child can get these and any other needed immunizations at the Minnie Hamilton Health System Grantsville Office, Glenville Office, or the School Based Clinics.
For more information regarding the new requirements or to make an appointment call the Grantsville Office at 304.354.9244 or our Glenville Office Pediatric Clinic at 304.462.5909.
