North Carolina law requires all 12th graders to receive the meningococal vaccine booster prior to the start of your 12th grade year. The vaccination must be completed and current immunization records updated before the start of the 2023-2024 school year.
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. All 12th graders must have an MCV booster by the 30th day of school or be excluded from classes.
This is a 2 dose immunization requirement, the 1st dose was required in the 7th grade and the 2nd in the 12th grade in Guilford County Schools. This requirement is for all students in the class of 2024 and thereafter.
