The Ohio Department of Health
requires Ohio students receive two doses of Men ACWY (meningococcal serogroup A,C,W and Y) vaccine prior to entry into the 12th grade. (Many students may have received the first dose of meningococcal vaccine at the age of 11-12). If the first dose of MenACWY was administered on or after the 16th
birthday, a second dose is not required. In order
to assist parents and students in meeting this requirement, the Men ACWY vaccine will be offered on April 6, 2021 at Wapakoneta High School.
Please see the attached forms for more information. Paper copies are available in the high school office
and are available by request.
Please note: The meningococcal vaccine is not a Covid Vaccine and is recommended, but as with all vaccines is not mandatory.
