New Immunization Requirement for 7th Graders Statewide
Students entering 7th grade are now required to have an additional dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine and one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine. These vaccines are additional boosters to vaccine requirements for students. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to provide proof of immunizations on or before the first day of school for your 7th grade child.
For more information, visit this link: www.immunize.nc.gov/schools/index.htm. Here you will find the complete schedule of required immunization for all students in Moore County Schools.
Please contact your health care provider or the Moore County Health Department at 910-947-3300 if your child needs these vaccine boosters.
