Attention Seniors - Meningococcal Immunization Boosters

ATTENTION SENIORS - MENINGOCOCCAL
IMMUNIZATION BOOSTERS


In accordance with North Carolina State Law, all students attending public schools
entering the 12th grade are required to receive a booster dose of Meningococcal
vaccine. Most medical providers in Wake County are seeing appointments for health
assessments and immunizations. All parents/students are encouraged to make an
appointment with their private provider.  Due to COVID-19, the NC Immunization
Program has extended the immunization requirements date to September 30. If the
parent/student has not provided immunization documentation by October 31, the
student MUST be excluded from school until documentation is provided.
