In 2015, the State of North Carolina added Meningococcal vaccine to the school required immunizations. The first dose of Meningococcal vaccine, MCV, was given to this year’s Juniors prior to the start of 7th grade as a school required vaccine. The second dose of this vaccine is required prior to the start of the Senior year, the 2022-23 school year.
If your child does not currently have evidence of the 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 Nurse Lisa Young through the Front Office. This documentation must be on file at Piedmont High prior to the start of the 2022-23 school year to meet this school enrollment requirement. Individuals born before 1/1/2003 are exempt from this requirement.
