The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Bureau for Public Health has added several adolescent immunizations to the school attendance immunization requirements.
Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, all West Virginia students entering 7th grade must have had one dose of the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) and one dose of the meningococcal vaccine.
Students entering 12th grade must also have had at least one dose of the Tdap vaccine and a second dose of the meningococcal vaccine. If the first dose of the meningococcal vaccine was received after age 16, then only one dose of this vaccine is required.
Visit the following website for more information on the new requirements and customizable memos to assist in this effort. http://immunizenow.org/recommended/adolescentimmunizations/default.aspx

The health records data system is not utilized to its full potential for various reasons including but not limited to data entry burden (staffing, time and access).
To address this barrier, WVDE developed a health record App to sync data (BMI, immunizations, & health screening) directly into the WVEIS system.
Each county school system was provided funds to purchase a hand-held computing device (iTouch, iPhone, or iPad) to utilize this App.
Height/Weight with calculation of BMI
Screening & referral for vision, hearing, speech/language development and dental
Immunization records with month/date/year along with a space for notes and codes
Health screening information is easy to enter on both currently enrolled and not yet enrolled students
Health screening information is integrated to the existing WVEIS IBM (AS/400) student data
Access to entry of health screening data is secure and confidential
