The WCHS nursing department wants to inform you that the Missouri state immunization law has added a new meningococcal vaccine (MCV) requirement for all students who will be seniors for the 2016-2017 school year.
Two doses of MCV are required unless the first dose was administered to a student who was 16 years of age or older, in which case only one dose is required. All seniors are required to have one MCV, after the age of 16, to attend school in August 2016.
Your child may receive this vaccine from your doctor or your local health department by appointment. (Remember to take your immunization record with you to your appointment). A record of this must be turned in to the school nurse before picking up their schedule.
