The State of Ohio and Bexley Board of Education require that each student meet the minimum vaccine requirement in order to attend school. Full date (month/day/year) of each required vaccination must be on file no later than two weeks after the student has entered school. As required by Ohio law, a student may not be permitted to continue to attend school without this required information on file. Click here for the Franklin County Public Health clinics
