2015-2016 Immunization

* Immunization requirements in the State of Maryland have changed for the 2015-2016 school year for students entering Kindergarten and Grade 7.

As a result, all Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) students who will be enrolling in Kindergarten must receive two (2) doses of the Varicella (Chicken Pox) vaccine.

All students who will be enrolling in Grade 7 are required to receive a single dose of the TDaP (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) vaccine and a single dose of the Meningococcal (Meningitis) vaccine.

Students have 20 calendar days after the start of the 2014-2015 school year to present medical verification of receiving the required vaccinations. If documentation is not presented the student will not be allowed back in school until the required records have been provided.

Parents are asked to contact their child’s physician to ensure that their child’s immunizations are current for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. Families without health insurance may contact the Prince George’s County Health Department Immunization Clinic at 301-583-3386.

If you have any questions about the immunization requirements please contact PGCPS School Health Services at 301-749-4722
