New Immunization Requirements for 7th Graders (Video)
Parents of students entering seventh grade are reminded that new immunization requirements announced earlier this year require students to have one Tdap (Tetanus-diphtheria-attenuated pertussis) and one meningococcal (MCV4) vaccination.
Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services staff will provide free Tdap and MCV4 vaccinations to incoming seventh-grade students at the Montgomery County Public Schools’ (MCPS) Back to School Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 23.
The fair will be held at MCPS’ Carver Educational Center, 850 Hungerford Drive in Rockville.
Appointments are required and can be made online at http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/Resident/vaccination.html. A parent or designated adult must be present with a parent-signed consent form at the time of the vaccination.
