Seniors are required to have the meningococcal vaccine before the start of senior year.
Here are the guidelines for the meningococcal vaccine:
- Every senior needs at least one meningococcal vaccine
- If your student has had two meningococcal vaccines, he/she meets the requirement
- If your student received one meningococcal vaccine before the age of 16 years old, he/she will need a second vaccine to meet the requirement
- If your student had his/her first meningococcal vaccine after 16 years old, one vaccine will meet the requirement*
*A second booster dose is recommended for everyone, but if over 16 and getting the first vaccine, the school requirement is met.
