All incoming seventh grade students, as well as eight and ninth grade students that are new to the state, must receive vaccination against Tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) and Meningococcal meningitis (MCV4) prior to the start of the 2016-2017 school year. Students not in compliance with Maryland vaccination requirements will be excluded from attending school until they provide documentation of the required Tdap and MCV immunizations. The requirements are in place throughout the State of Maryland.
Parents should contact their doctor to make sure their child is properly immunized and submit a copy of the documentation to the child's school health nurse as soon as possible.
To ensure all students have a chance to receive the necessary immunizations, the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will hold free clinics for children 18 years old and younger throughout the summer.
Appointments are required and can be made by calling 240-777-3160 . A parent or designated adult must be present with a parent-signed consent form at the time of vaccination.
