Updated Immunizations for 5th Graders

State Law requires all children entering the 6th grade to have updated immunizations and a physical. Your child needs to have this completed BEFORE the beginning of next school year. You can get this completed at your family doctor’s office or at the School-Based Health Center that is located in the Newport Middle School building. To schedule an appointment at the School-Based Health Center call 859-291-1910. Be sure to call soon to get your appointment. This is required for every 5th grader so appointment times will fill up fast.
