North Carolina law requires all rising 12th graders to receive a meningococcal vaccine booster before starting 12th grade. 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. Please submit an updated copy of their immunization record to the office or email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. We must have a record of the booster by the first day of the school year.
This is a 2-dose immunization. The first dose was required in the 7th grade in Wake County schools. For more information on required and recommended vaccines, please see this information from the Wake County Health Department.
