Required Childhood Vaccinations for Preschool Programs and Schools

All Maryland students must provide documentation that they have received the required vaccinations at the appropriate interval in order to attend school. This applies to students who are new to Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) entering Prekindergarten, Kindergarten, Grade 7, or who are transferring from another school district at any grade level.  Maryland State law requires that families provide proof of vaccinations within 20 days of the first day of school, which is Monday, August 28, 2023

Parents/Guardians may contact their healthcare provider for a copy of their children's vaccination records to verify which vaccinations have been received to date, or may view and print their children's vaccination records at the Maryland Department of Health Center for Immunization website: All healthcare providers in Maryland are now required to record vaccinations administered on lmmuNet, Maryland's secure immunization information system. Hard copies of the vaccination records are to be submitted to your school's assigned School Health Services (SHS) health room staff.
