Welcome to the BHS Health Office
2020-2021 New York State Health Requirements
All students entering 9th grade are required to have one dose of the Meningococcal Vaccine on file in the Health Office prior to the first day of school.
- If your child had the first dose before 9th grade, then another dose is not required until 12th grade.
All students entering 12th grade are required to have two doses of the Meningococcal Vaccine on file in the Health Office prior to the first day of school.
- Two doses will be required before 12th grade. Most students entering 12th grade got their first dose when they were younger and are now due for their second dose, or booster. This booster is needed because protection from the vaccine decreases over time.
- A small number of teens who received two doses before their 16th birthday may need a third dose on or after their 16th birthday to enter 12th grade.
- The only teens who will not need a second dose before 12th grade are those who got their first dose on or after their 16th birthday.
It's best to check with your doctor to see whether or not your child needs the vaccine.
