Notes from the Nurse

  • Vaccines

    Kansas requires two vaccines for students entering seventh grade. The required vaccines are the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis/Whooping Cough) and the Meningococcal Vaccine.

    Your child needs to provide the school with documentation that they have received these vaccines.

    Where can you obtain these vaccines?

    • Your family physician or pediatrician
    • Walk-in clinics, including CVS and Walgreens
    • Health Partnership Clinic (407 S. Clairborne, Olathe KS)
    • Johnson County Health Department (Northwest corner of 119th Street and Ridgeview)
