Juniors Meningococcal Vaccine Requirement - 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 current 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 2020-2021 school year.
If your child has not had the 2nd dose of the MCV vaccine, please contact your child’s healthcare provider or the Union County Health Dept. to obtain it. Please submit a copy of the record showing evidence of the 2nd dose to the school’s front office. This documentation must be on file here at school prior to the start of the 2020-2021 school year to meet this school enrollment requirement. Individuals born before 1/1/2003 are exempt from this requirement.
