Additional Tdap and MCV Clinics Begin This Week

Aug. 30, 2021 – As the deadline for getting your Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap) and Meningococcal Conjugate (MCV) vaccines quickly approaches for 7th and 12th graders, the Guilford County Division of Public Health (GCDPH) is hosting additional clinics to provide opportunities to families to get these required vaccines. The clinics will take place in both High Point and Greensboro.

Proof of the Tdap and MCV immunizations are required in North Carolina within 30 days of enrollment to avoid exclusion from school. This year’s exclusion date is Sept. 22, which means Sept. 21 is the last day a 7th or 12th grade student will be allowed to return to school without these immunizations.

The Tdap and MCV immunizations will be offered on the following schedule:
