NEW IMMUNIZATIONS REQUIREMENTS FOR SENIORS

NC has a new immunization requirement for 12th graders. They MUST have a second meningococcal vaccine ( the first was before/at 7th grade). Normally this is required within 30 days of school starting but has been extended due to COVID-19.
Although school is virtual, this is still a GRADUATION REQUIREMENT. Ms. Peele would like this completed by 9/30. The Washington County Health Department's number is 793-3023 if you would like to call & schedule an appointment there.
Seniors can check their school email for more detailed information about this immunization that was sent to them. It was also emailed to some parents/guardians if you have provided your email address to the school.
Feel free to email or call with any questions or concerns.
