Students entering 7th Grade

 

Under Nevada law, all students who are entering the seventh grade, and all students who are in grades eight through high school and are new to a Nevada public school, will be required to have the 1-MCV4 (Meningococcal) immunization AND the neisseria meningitidis (meningitis) vaccines. This is the most recent addition to required immunizations in order to be enrolled in a public school. Students entering grade seven are already required to have a Tdap vaccination.

 

Clark County School District (CCSD) Health Services Director Lynn Row said, “CCSD does not do immunizations, so we are encouraging parents to contact their family physician or the Southern Nevada Health District to make arrangements for their child to receive the newly required immunization or any of the immunizations that apply to their child.”

 

Students will not be permitted to attend classes without the proper proof of immunizations. 

 

Please make sure you have provided the health office with a record of your child’s immunizations. Please contact the school Health Office at 799-8080 ext. 4022 should you have any questions, concerns, or if you are unsure if your child has met the requirement.

Long lines are expected for immunization services the closer it gets to the start of each school year, longer wait times can be anticipated.
