Meningococcal Vaccine Requirement: Important message for current 11th grade students regarding the Meningitis C vaccination requirement. The first dose of Meningococcal vaccine (MCV) was given prior to the start of 7th grade as a school required vaccine. North Carolina Immunization Law requires the second dose of MCV for all students entering 12th grade.
For complete details and explanations, please review the website https://immunize.nc.gov/schools/ncruleslaws.htm for NC general statutes 130A-157. If your child does not currently have evidence of the second MCV vaccine, please contact your child’s health care provider to obtain it. Following administration of the vaccine, please submit a copy of the record to the School Nurse. This documentation must be obtained within 30 days of the start of the 2023-24 school year to meet this school enrollment requirement.
Thank you for your timely attention to this matter. If you have any questions, our School Nurse, Lisa Young, will certainly be available to you as a resource. Please contact her at 704-296-3710.
