All West Virginia students entering the 12th grade must have at least one dose of the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) vaccine and a second dose of the Meningococcal vaccine. If the first dose of the Meningococcal vaccine was received after age 16, then only one dose of this vaccine is required.
Documentation of the new immunization requirements must be provided to the school counselor prior to the first day of their senior school year.
If you have any questions, please contact your primary health care provider or the Wetzel-Tyler Health Department at (304) 337-2001.
Please sign and return the bottom portion of this letter. This form must be received by the guidance department prior to scheduling for 12th grade classes.
I have read and understand the 2012-2013 immunization requirements for 12th grade students attending a West Virginia School.
