Nurse's Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians of Rising 7th graders,


North Carolina has passed a new immunization law beginning July 1, 2015 that requires all students entering the 7th grade in 2015 to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) and one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine who have not already received it (possibly before entering the 6th grade).

Please contact your child’s healthcare provider or your local health department to talk about which vaccines your child may need and to schedule an appointment to receive these vaccines.

Please ask your healthcare provider or the health department for a copy of your child’s immunization record. This copy will need to be given to the school nurse on the first day of school. There will be a 30 calendar day grace period after the first day of school to get these vaccines for your child. If proof of the vaccines is not provided before school starts on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, your child will be suspended from school until proof of the vaccine is provided to the school.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact me!

Thank you for your attention to this matter!

Tracey Umberger, BSN, RN, NCSN
