Vaccines, more required for Cabell County students

July 2, 2018 GMT

HUNTINGTON — The 2018-19 school year requires Cabell County students entering pre-K, Kindergarten, second, seventh and 12th grades to have a health check, dental exam and updated shot records. All students entering 7th grade or 12th grade are required to have the Meningococcal and Tetanus vaccinations before entering school on the first day.

Parents and guardians who have not yet done so are urged to make an appointment with their child’s doctor to complete the immunizations requirements, health check and dental exam. These updated documents should be given to your school nurse as soon as possible.

Failure to comply with the West Virginia state immunization requirements will result in your child being excluded from school.
