The Portage County Health Department has released the new vaccine requirements that might affect your child.
Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year:
All students entering the 7th grade will be required to have one dose of meningococcal vaccine (also known as MCV4, Menveo or Menactra) in addition to one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diptheria, and acellular pertussis).
All students entering the 12th grade will be required to have a 2nd dose of meningococcal vaccine prior to entry. If the first dose of MCV4 was administered on or after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.
Nurses from the Portage County Health Department will be at Miller School during Kindergarten Registration (March 8, 2016) and will administer immunizations to any student under the age of 18.
