Due to a North Carolina law, all students are required to receive the Tdap & MCV vaccines before starting 7th grade or 12 years of age.
Both vaccines will be offered to 6th graders school during the week of April 23. Transylvania Public Health school nurses will administer the vaccines to students who have written parental permission; if you wish to have your child vaccinated at school, please complete the permission form and return it to school.
Completed permission forms must be returned by March 29. Your student has received a permission packet at school. Forms are also available here.
Students who do not receive the vaccines at school will be required to get them at their doctor’s office or Transylvania Public Health prior to entering 7th grade.
