New Vaccine Requirement

Are your child’s vaccines up to date for 7th grade entry??

Per NC State Law, students entering 7th grade should be up to date with all the required vaccines for kindergarten entry. In addition, all students entering 7th grade or who have reached 12 years of age on or after July 1, 2015 are required to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis) vaccine and one dose of meningococcal vaccine.

Note: HPV, Hepatitis A, and a second dose of Varicella are not required but are recommended for this age group by the ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices).

You may call our office to schedule a nurse visit, or have your child receive these vaccines during their scheduled well child exam this summer.
