What is the Grade 7 Immunization Program?
Every year grade 7 students are offered 3 vaccines through the school immunization program. Students are offered Hepatitis B, Human Papillomavirus, and the Meningococcal vaccine. Meningococcal vaccine is required for attending school while Hepatitis B and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) are not required but recommended to protect children from these diseases.
These 3 immunizations will be offered at all elementary and intermediate schools beginning Fall 2023 and then again in the Spring of 2024. View the schedule to see when we will be at your school.
Meningococcal ACYW-135 (1 dose only, fall) *this vaccination is different than Meningococcal C vaccine received in childhood*
Hepatitis B (2 doses, 6 months apart - fall and spring)
HPV (2 doses, 6 months apart - fall and spring)
