Public Health Dayton & Montgomery County and Dayton Children’s Play Key Roles

(DAYTON, Ohio – August 21, 2020) – CareSource, a leading multi-state managed care plan, announced a partnership with Montgomery County Public Health and Dayton Children’s to hold a back to school vaccination event for 7th and 12th graders on Wednesday, August 26th at the Dayton Kroc Center. The state requires all 7th-grade students to have a TDAP and meningitis vaccine and all 12th-grade students to have a second meningitis vaccine before beginning the school year.

“As Ohio sees a serious decline in vaccinations, clinics like this will become even more critical to prevent additional outbreaks,” said Steve Ringel, CareSource Ohio Market President. “CareSource is committed to working with community and state organizations to encourage and educate on the importance of continuing to get vaccinated even during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority will also be supporting the event with free transportation for all children in 7th and 12th grades traveling with their parent/guardian on August 26, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

If a parent has questions about in-person vaccination opportunities, they should consult their care provider.
