      a. Notice

    • The purpose of this letter is to inform you of immunization requirements that will impact rising 12th grade students. Students entering 12th grade are required to have a booster (second) dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine if they have not already received one. An up-to-date immunization record indicating that your student has received all required immunizations is due by the first day of attendance at school. If proof of immunization is not provided within 30 calendar days after school entry, your student will not be allowed to attend school until it is provided, as required by law. North Carolina law provides for only two types of exemptions from required immunizations. These are medical (N.C. G.S.130A-156 Medical Exemption) and religious (N.C. G.S.130A-157 Religious Exemption), as detailed below. If your child has a medical or religious exemption to this vaccine(s), you are required to provide documentation of this exemption(s).

       b. Healthcare Providers for Immunizations

    • Your Primary Care Provider (PCP)
    • The Health Department
    • Southern SES Wellness Center (provided through Duke University Medical Center).
