  • Note from SCPA Nurse ~ Meningococcal (Meningitis) Vaccine: If your student receives vaccines they would have gotten a meningitis vaccine prior to 7th grade as it is required by the Minnesota Immunization Law. This vaccine requires a booster dose at age 16 and for sure before they go to college. The Health Office has notified Seniors who have not had their booster dose in the fall and again this winter. If your student is 16 or older and has gotten their booster dose please notify the Health Office with the month/day/year. If we all ready have a physician signed medical exemption or notarized conscientious objection on file that still applies, no need for a new one. If you have any questions please contact the Licensed School Nurse, Candace Westlund. Thank you!
