Wondering what immunizations your child needs before attending school in Maryland this year?
- Kindergarten/First-grade Students: Two chickenpox vaccines
- Grade 7/Grade 8: One tetanus, diptheria and pertussis vaccine (Tdap Vaccine) and one meningitis vaccine (meningococcal vaccine)
Students who are not fully immunized on the first day of school must have a written exemption letter or proof of an appointment in the first 20 calendar days of school (for non-military families) and 30 days (for military families).
Students who are non-compliant after that time will not be allowed to attend school until they receive their immunizations.
