Immunizations and Health Assessments


In order for children to enter school in North Carolina, they must have up-to-date immunization records and a health assessment.  ​

Immunization requirements and resources 


In compliance with North Carolina law (General Statute 130A-152-157), parents/guardian must present certification of the required immunizations at the age required by law on or before the first day a student enters school. Any medical exemption must be in writing from a physician and must state the basis for the exemption. 

Physical Exams/Health Assessments:

Starting in 2016-17, parents/guardians must submit proof of a health assessment for each child who is presented for admission into N.C. public schools for the first time. The health assessment must have been completed within 12 months prior to the date the child would have first been eligible for initial entry into the public schools. (General Statute 130A-440; 10A NCAC09.3005)More about the new health assessment requirement.
