New Booster Shot Requirement Postponed

New Booster Shot Required for School
Posted on 12/17/2019
Department of Public HealthThe Georgia Department of Public Health has postponed the requirement of  roof of a meningococcal conjugate booster shot (MCV4) for all students entering the 11th grade effective July 1, 2020 unless their first dose was received on or after their 16th birthday.

Meningococcal disease is serious, but your teen can be protected.  Check with your doctor or local public health department to find out if your teen is up to date on their MCV4 booster shot and other shots recommended for teens.

Students entering 11th grade at HHS must have this booster shot before they can begin school for the 2020-2021 school year.
