Student Immunizations


Student Services/Early Learning-Laurie Delong

We are starting to make plans for the 2018-2019 school year and would like to share information to help make it a healthy and smooth start. There are immunization requirements for incoming Kindergarteners, 7th Graders, and 12th Graders. By making plans to schedule your child's immunizations now, parents can avoid the August rush.

Kindergarten immunization appointments can become very limited in July and August, so the Paulding County Health Department is having a special kindergarten shot clinic day for Wayne Trace Schools. It will be Tuesday, April 10th form 8:00 AM - 11:15 AM, and 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM. To make an appointment, call 1-866-399-3921.

Vaccines Mandatory for Kindergarten (if child is already up-to-date):

  • ?five DTap (Diptheria, Tetanus, Acellular Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
  • ?four Polio
  • ?two MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
  • ?three Hepatitis B
  • ?two Varicella (chicken pox)

Parents of future 7th Graders should know that their immunizations will need to be updated before attending school in the fall of 2018. Required is the Tdap (Diptheria, Tetanus, Acellular Pertussis (Whooping Cough) vaccine, and Meningococcal Vaccine (Serogroups A, C, W, and Y). For 12th graders, the Meningococcal Vaccine (Serogroups A, C, W, and Y) is needed.

Please contact your family physician or make an appointment with the Paulding County Health Department for further information, or to schedule an appointment.
