Friday is deadline for immunization records
HUNTINGTON - As school districts have previously announced, beginning this school year, the state of West Virginia has required all students entering seventh or 12th grades to have the meningococcal and tetanus vaccinations.
The deadline for submitting records of those immunizations is Friday, Aug. 31. If these immunization records are not submitted by the end of the day on Aug. 31, affected children will be excluded from school beginning Monday, Sept. 3.
If a child has not yet received the required immunizations, the district advises their guardian to contact their care provider immediately.
