On November 9, 2017, DHHS will hold vaccination clinics to administer the injectable flu vaccine for school-aged children only at John F. Kennedy, Rockville, and Northwest high schools. Parents or guardians must make appointments for their child to receive a vaccination at these clinics either online or by calling 311.
