In partnership with Akron Children's Hospital, Health Heroes, Inc. will be offering the TDap and Meningitis vaccination clinics at Wooster High School and Edgewood Middle School. These vaccinations are REQUIRED for school enrollment by the state of Ohio.
Students entering seventh grade will need to have one dose of meningococcal (serogroups A, C, W and Y) vaccine in addition to the requirement of having one dose of the Tap (tetanus, dipththeria, and acellular pertussis) vaccine.
Students entering 12th grade will need to have a second dose of meningococcal vaccine. The second dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday. If the first dose of meningococcal vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.
Parents must fill out and sign the consent form (attached below) or can be obtained at the school. Consent forms will also be mailed to all 6th and 11th grade parents and guardians.
A SEPARATE CONSENT FORM IS NEEDED FOR EACH VACCINE
Regardless of your insurance coverage or what your insurance company pays, there is NO COST to you for the vaccine.
