All incoming seventh grade students must receive vaccination against Tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) and Meningococcal meningitis (MCV4) prior to the start of the 2017-2018 school year. Students will be required to provide documentation of the required Tdap and MCV4 immunizations. The requirements are in place throughout the state of Maryland.
Parents/guardians 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, but no later than Tuesday, September 5, the first day of the 2017-2018 school year.
The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services is offering free vaccination clinics throughout July and August. Please see the attached flyer for locations and dates.
