• Immunizations and Health Assessment

  • North Carolina Law requires that children entering public schools must have up-to-date immunizations and a health assessment.

    Parents/Guardians must provide the school with an up-to-date immunization record on or before the first day of student enrollment. This is in compliance with NC General Statue 130A 152-157

    Physical Exams/Health Assessment

    immunizations  

    Proof of a health assessment for a child entering NC public schools for the first time is required according to NC General Statue 130A-440. The health assessment must have been completed within 12 months prior to the date of entry to public school.

    Health Assessment Form         

    • Health Assessment forms are also available through your physician's office or your local school.

    Immunizations and Health Assessments

     

    State law outlines the required immunizations for school entry.  All children new to NC public schools (including transferring from private, charter, and home schools) must present a health assessment trasmittal and an immunization form within 30 calendar days of the student's first day of attendance.  These forms are available at your student's pediatrician's office.  

     

    It is preferred that documentation of immunizations and the health assessments are provided to the school prior to or at the time of student enrollment. Students do have a grace period of 30 calendar days from their first date of attendance to come into compliance with these requirements.  A student’s  continued enrollment is contingent upon the school receiving documentation of immunizations and of the health assessment.   

     

    Please contact your school nurse with any questions about the required immunizations and health assessment.
