New Immunization Requirement for students entering 12th grade in Fall of 2020

ATTENTION!  New Immunization Requirement

 ...for students who will be entering 12th grade in Fall 2020! 

 

 Certain current 11th grade students will be required to have a Meningococcal vaccine (MCV/ MenACWY)  by the beginning of their 12th grade year (2020-2021).  This vaccine is required for ALL students in North Carolina who will be entering 12th grade in the fall of 2020.  

 

 This is the second dose of the Meningococcal vaccine (MCV/MenACWY)  which you received as a requirement for 7th grade in 2015. If you had your first dose at age 16 or after, you are NOT required to get the second dose.   

 

 Please contact the school nurse, your primary medical provider, or your local health department to schedule an appointment for the vaccine sometime this school year. You must turn in your complete immunization record to the school nurse prior to the beginning of the 2020 - 2021 school year. 

 

 You are advised to take care of this now during your 11th grade year.   Please contact your Caswell County School Nurse or your primary medical provider if you have questions.
