Immunizations are required by state law to attend school, including virtually, and are vital for children’s overall health and wellness. To help Howard County students obtain the necessary immunizations, HCPSS Health Services continues to partner with the Howard County Health Department and the Maryland Partnership for Prevention to offer several immunization clinics for any student who may need them. Multiple vaccines will be offered at the clinics at no cost to families. Upon registration, parents will be able to choose which vaccines their child needs.

HCPSS students may attend a clinic at any location, however pre-registration is required. Parents/guardians must complete an online consent process prior to the clinic dates. Registration is open through September 9. Families in need of registration assistance may contact their child’s school for additional support.

The immunization clinics will take place outdoors at the following dates/times and locations:

Clinics will utilize a virtual queue, so families can stay in their cars or socially distance themselves until their appointment. All attendees should wear a protective face mask or face covering.

Immunization requirements can be found online. Parents/guardians can access the state registry of vaccinations at md.myir.net to view their child’s vaccine records. They can also contact their school nurse or pediatrician for that information.
