***Your Rising Seventh Grader Needs a Booster Before Returning to School***
On May 14, 2014, the North Carolina Commission for Public Health approved new vaccine requirements and changes to existing requirements as documented in Administrative Code 10 A NCAC 41 A .0401 Dosage and Age Requirements for Immunizations. These changes will go into effect July 1, 2015.
What this change means for our students is that beginning with the 2015-2016 school year all seventh graders will now be required to have the Meningococcal Conjugate (MCV) before starting school. This is mandatory for ALL students going into seventh grade. Please note, incoming sixth graders will not need to have their Tdap as previously required before starting sixth grade since this is now required prior to seventh grade.
All questions regarding immunizations should be directed to Connie Connelly.
