Meningitis Shot

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Attention 11th Grade Students and Parents

Iowa law requires that all students entering 12th grade must have a meningitis shot after the age of 16. Your student will not be allowed to begin school next year he/she has met this requirement and provided documentation to the school nurse.

Please check with your medical provider to see if you have met this requirement. If not, please schedule an appointment with your provider to get the meningitis shot and provide documentation to the school nurse BEFORE the end of the current school year.

If you would like to utilize the services of the Primary Health Care Clinic located at Scavo to receive the vaccine, please contact them at 242-8488 (select option 1) to schedule an appointment. Consent forms are available in the nurse’s office or the clinic.

If you have questions, or need assistance with meeting this requirement, please contact me at the phone/email below.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
