Greensboro, N.C. –The extended deadline for 7th and 12th graders to get their required Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap) and Meningococcal Conjugate (MCV) vaccines is coming up quickly. Cone Health and Guilford County Department of Public Health are hosting additional clinics to provide opportunities to families to get these required vaccines. The clinics will take place at schools in different areas of Guilford County Schools.
Proof of the Tdap and MCV immunizations are required in North Carolina within 30 days of enrollment to avoid exclusion from school. However, due to COVID-19, this year’s extended exclusion grace period began on Nov. 1. This means Nov. 30 is the last day a 7th or 12th grade student will be allowed to return to school without these immunizations.
Tdap and MCV immunization clinic hosted by Cone Health:
Nov. 20 at Hairston Middle from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Nov. 22 at Kiser Middle from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
