Routine Vaccinations

As our community’s families prepare to head back to school in August, it is important for children to be caught up on routine vaccinations, as this provides protection against many childhood illnesses.


Students entering 7th grade must have one dose each of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) and meningococcal vaccines if they have not previously received these vaccines. 


For families who do not already have a primary care provider, school nurses can help them find a physician. Public Health also offers routine vaccinations for children and teens, including those required for school. More information on routine childhood and COVID-19 vaccines for children and teens: Call Catawba County Public Health’s Immunizations Clinic at 828-695-5881.
