Annual Health Assessment and Immunization Compliance Reporting

All North Carolina public and public charter schools are required annually to report on the status of Health Assessments for those students who are enrolling for the first time in a North Carolina public or public charter school (§ 130A-441(c}), and the Immunization status of all students in Kindergarten and in Seventh Grade (G.S. 130A-1SS(c)). Students are required to be compliant with regulations within 30 calendar days of school admission. Reporting is mandated within 60 calendar days after commencement of the new school year. As a result, compliance reports are due no later than November 1, 2018, but may be completed at any time prior to that date and are now open.

A combined compliance report is available this year, by school name and ID number, and must be completed on-line at: Annual Health Assessment and Immunization Compliance Reporting

Child Care Facilities

Child care facilities check immunization records, too. Find out what vaccines children need before attending a child care facility, access reporting forms and view and print resources.
