The State of Ohio requires that all students, prior to entrance of the seventh grade receive a Tdap vaccine. This is a tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) booster.
The Dayton Christian Clinic will need documentation of this immunization or a signed exemption form by September 4th, the 15th day of school. Failure to provide this documentation may mean students will be excluded from school until we have received it.
The Tdap is the only vaccine that is required. Physicians may recommend others, which you may want to research prior to your appointment.
Your physician may fax the record directly to the clinic at 291-7254 anytime or you may submit a copy to the clinic. If you have any questions regarding this requirement or would like locations of local health clinics, please feel free to contact me or Debbie Smith, Clinic Health Secretary, in the clinic at 291-7252. We would love to assist you in any way we can.
