Effective next school year 2018-2019, the Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene requires all 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th & 11th grade students in the state of Maryland to have a single dose of Tdap and a single dose of Meningococcal vaccine (MCV4) before entering school.
If the health room does not have documentation of the Tdap & MCV4 vaccines on file for your child, a letter indicating need of immunizations is attached to your child’s 4th quarter interim report card. Please review the letter for further information. Having your child’s updated immunization record on file prior to the end of this school year will help eliminate the possibility of exclusion from school at the start of 7th grade in September. Please contact the health room at 410-313-5550 if you have any further questions. Thank you!
