We also refer students and their parents when they require more specialized medical attention. Please visit the Cobb County School District School Health Services website for answers to other questions about medications and healthcare at school.

MENINGOCOCCAL BOOSTER SHOT FOR 2021–2022
According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, before starting the 2021–2022 school year, all students entering or transferring into eleventh grade will need proof of a meningococcal booster shot (MCV4). The exception is if they had their first dose on or after their 16th birthday. Meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial infection of the brain and spinal cord fluid.
For more information on this topic, please check out this flyer from Kathleen E. Toomey, M.D., M.P.H. Commissioner & State Health Officer.
A student who becomes ill during the school day should report to the clinic. We assess the severity of the injury or illness, and if necessary contact a parent.
If possible, students should take prescription medications at home. Students may carry EpiPens, inhalers, or diabetic supplies for their medical condition and keep all other prescription medications in the clinic. Parents must submit authorization forms to the clinic before students can carry medications or receive them from the clinic.
Please read the message from your school nurse concerning clinic guidelines.
