Important Immunization Requirements for Incoming 7th Grade Students:

  • Effective the first day of school, school year 2022-2023, 1 dose of Tdap vaccine and 1 dose of Meningococcal vaccine will be required by the state of Maryland for all students entering Grade 7.  If we do not receive proof of these immunizations, your child will be excluded from school on August 29.  Many students may have already received these immunizations, but the Health Room may not have the updated immunization record.  Please contact your child’s doctor and send, via email or fax, an updated copy of your child’s immunizations to the Health Room.  The Health Room fax number is (410) 531-2473.  If you have further questions, please email our school nurse at Laura_Smith1@hcpss.org.
  • Information from the Howard County Health Department on Back to School vaccine clinics can be located here.
