Dear Parent,

The Louisiana State Department of Health and Hospitals/Office of Public Health requires a Meningococcal vaccine booster due at age 16, effective July 1, 2019, therefore, a student who is sixteen years old entering a grade other than eleventh grade, or entry into the eleventh grade, shall provide satisfactory evidence of current immunization against meningococcal disease.

If your child is presently 16 years old or older, this is the time he/she needs these vaccinations.  Please make an appointment with your physician or local health unit soon to obtain the vaccination. When your child has received the required vaccination, please ask your physician/health unit to provide an updated Louisiana “Universal Certificate of Immunization”for his/her school records.

Thank you for your attention to this important health issue.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the School Nurse at 337-419-2868.

Sincerely,

GeMar Braxton, BSN, RN
School Nurse
