This fall will be the third school year that the meningococcal vaccine requirement is in effect under Ohio Revised Code. All incoming seventh graders must have one dose of the meningococcal vaccine, and all incoming twelfth graders must have a second dose of the vaccine.
Clinic times and dates are subject to change. Bring vaccine record if available, insurance card, and cash, check, or Visa/MasterCard. All children under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. LCPH participates in the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program
to provide vaccines to children who qualify; no child in the VFC program is denied vaccine for inability to pay. Travel vaccines and resources
needed to enable a healthy trip are available by appointment.
