Rising 12th Grader Vaccine Requirement
ATTENTION: New Immunization Requirement for students who will be entering 12th grade in the Fall of 2020!
The State of North Carolina is requiring that current 11th grade students must have a Meningococcal vaccine (MCV/MenACWY) before returning in the fall for the 2020 - 2021 School Year. This is the second dose of the vaccine, which was received as a requirement for 7th grade in 2015. If your child had their first dose at age 16 or after, you are NOT required to get he second dose.
You are advised to take care of this not during the 11th grade year. Please contact the RHS Student Health Center, your primary medical provider, or your local health department to schedule an appointment for the vaccine sometime this current school year. A complete immunization record must be submitted to the RHS Student Services before a student will be issued a class schedule.
