We are asking all parents/guardians to visit your child’s Infinite Campus parent portal and view their child’s Health Tab. We are seeing immunization non-compliance for a variety of reasons. Most non-compliance issues are the result of the new immunization requirements. Please view your child’s Health Tab for these issues:
- If Hepatitis A vaccine dates aren’t displayed, please contact your healthcare provider. Many students have received the Hepatitis A vaccine, but the dates were not indicated on the certificate currently at school. Proper immunization for Hep A is two doses of the vaccine 6 months apart. If your child has already received the age-appropriate vaccines for school entry, he or she will not be required to receive the vaccine(s) again. Providing an updated immunization certificate with these required vaccines is all that is needed.
- Students entering 6th grade need a physical exam as well as Tdap and the first Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine
- Students aged 16 years or older should have two doses of Meningococcal (MCV4). If the first dose of MCV was received at age sixteen years or older, the second dose is not required. This is especially important for seniors if you are going to college.
If you find your child is missing these required immunizations, please contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible to address these issues. School personnel will also be reaching out to parents/guardians regarding the health requirements for their children. Anytime you get a new immunization certificate, please make a copy for your records.
