North Carolina law now requires all rising 12th graders receive a meningococcal vaccine booster before starting 12th grade. This includes those students enrolled in the Virtual Academy. The vaccination must be done before the 21-22 school year begins.
Parents will need to provide a copy of their child’s immunization record showing proof that the meningococcal vaccine has been completed prior to the first day of school. This is a 2-dose immunization; the 1st dose was required in the 7th grade in Wake County schools. This requirement is for everyone in the Class of 2021 and after.
