Attention 6th grade parents - Immunization requirements

Important Information for Current 6th Graders Regarding Tdap and Meningococcal Vaccine:

North Carolina law mandates that all children entering the 7th grade are required to have a Tdap and meningococcal conjugate vaccine. Tdap covers your child for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis, also known as whooping cough. The meningococcal vaccine is given to help prevent meningitis. Please bring in proof from your healthcare provider with the date the vaccines were given. 

For complete details and explanations, please review the website for NC general statutes 130A-157.

Please contact the school nurse if there are any questions.
