Hey Seniors: Important Message from Nurse Wesson!

Attention Seniors and Parents/Guardians of Seniors, 

Greetings from the Nurse's Office and Congratulations on your final year!!

Reminder that the Maine Legislature passed a law last spring about Meningococcal vaccine. To enter 12th grade, you must either have this vaccine or parents sign a waiver that you are not having this vaccine for philosophic or religious reasons. 

If you have the vaccine at the age of 16 or older, just that one will satisfy the law. If you had the 1st dose earlier than age 16, another dose is required. 

Letters were sent out last spring to parents , with several reminders to students.  There are 58 seniors for whom I have no information,documentation or waivers. I hope to get everyone into compliance in the next 3 weeks. Please send me any documentation or alert me if your student was vaccinated over the summer. I have exemption forms in my office.  Thanks so much!   Emily Wesson RN    338-1790  ext 306
