Incoming students in Montgomery Co. schools need up-to-date vaccinations

Are your kid’s shots up to date? If not, Montgomery County, Maryland, parents have two weeks to get them done.

Health officials are reminding parents that students who are entering grades 7 to 12 must have up-to-date vaccinations for Tdap (Tetanus-diptheria-attenuated pertussis) and MCV4 (meningococcal) by Sept. 23.

Students who do not have proof of immunizations will not be allowed to attend classes until they can provide documentation of completed vaccinations.
