MCV Vaccine Info: 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 is available to you as a resource. Please contact her at 704-292-7662.
