Kindergarten, 7th, & 12th Grade Immunization Requirements


    Parents/Guardians of newly enrolled kindergartners, 7th graders, and 12th-grade seniors need to remember to get their students immunized. 


    • Kindergartners are required to get a Polio booster vaccine and have two doses of the Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine in addition to immunizations already required.
    • 7th-grade students will need to get a Tdap vaccine as well as the Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV).
    • 12th-grade students are required to receive the booster dose of the Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV).


    To schedule an appointment for your student with the Guilford County Health Department please call (336) 641-3245. 

  • GCS is legally required to exclude students who do not have documentation showing they received the required vaccinations within 30 calendar days of the first day of school (Aug. 23, 2021, for schools on the traditional calendar), or their first date of enrollment. To avoid any missed class time, the Department of Health and Human Services – Public Health Division offers the required vaccinations at their Greensboro (1100 E. Wendover Ave.) and High Point (501 E. Green Dr.) locations.


    To schedule an appointment for your child please call (336) 641-3245. Students may also receive vaccinations from their healthcare provider.
