  • The Health Department is partnering with Onslow County Public Schools Health Services to offer the Tdap (required by state law for students entering 6th grade) and Menactra (highly recommended) vaccines to 5th graders at school.  Parents/guardians should complete the consent form and return it to their child’s school by March 7.  More information can be found in the parent/guardian letter. (Click on blue works to access forms).

    Most adults qualify for a tetanus shot with no insurance and no out of pocket expense!

    Immunizations are entered into the North Carolina Immunization Registry.
