New Immunization Requirement for the 2020-21 School Year

Meningococcal Meningitis and Influenza Vaccines

The Center for Disease Control makes available and recommends a meningococcal meningitis vaccine for all those between the ages of 11 through 18.  Certain higher risk populations, such as those with certain medical conditions are especially urged to get the vaccines. For more information, visit: www.cdc.gov/meningococcal/about/index.html.

Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses.  According to the CDC, the best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year.  The vaccine will protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the season.  For more information, visit: www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm.

 

HPV Vaccine

According to the Center for Disease Control, Human papillomavirus (HPV) is thought to be responsible for nearly all cervical dysplasia and cervical cancers.  Cervical dysplasia refers to abnormal changes in the cells on the surface of the cervix.  Although these changes are not cancer, they can lead to cancer of the cervix if not treated.  The HPV vaccine works by preventing the most common types of HPV that cause cervical cancer.  For more information, visit: www.cdc.gov/cancer/gynecologic/basic_info/index.htm.

COVID RESOURCES

Below are two guiding documents that schools are using to prepare for the return of face to face instruction.  The Strong Schools Tool Kit is written by the NC Department of Health and Human Services and the School Operational Guidance has been written by the NC Department of Public Instruction.

 

Also, I have included two COVID Information websites for the State of NC and for Wake County. 

 

If you should have any questions on any of the documents, please feel free to contact me at jude@longleafschool.com.
