Student Had Immunizations in Their Home Country or Another State

Parents must show the current doctor a medical record at the child’s physical examination. The doctor will issue a U.S. immunization record if the records are accurate. If there is no medical record of the immunizations, the child must be inoculated again.

Physical Examination and/or Immunizations

Children can have physical examinations and immunizations in a doctor’s office or at a clinic. All schools have information about free or low-cost examinations and immunizations.

Health Services Provided at Cincinnati Public Schools

Students receive screenings for vision (eye) or hearing (ear) problems. Children who wear glasses do not receive a vision screening.
If the screening shows a problem with the child’s vision or hearing the school sends a letter home.
If you receive a letter from the school, you should take your child to a doctor or clinic for a complete hearing or vision examination.
