REMINDER: Parents and guardians are responsible for their children being up-to-date on their school required immunizations. Per Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR), beginning on the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, FCPS will EXCLUDE ANY STUDENTS WHO DO NOT HAVE THE REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS unless they present evidence of an appointment for the missing immunizations scheduled within the next 20 calendar days. This includes students enrolled in the Virtual School program.

Need vaccines? Students can receive the required vaccinations the following ways:
- From their primary care provider.
- Local Pharmacies provide vaccinations on a walk-in basis. Please call your local pharmacy for hours and locations near you.
- If you do not have a primary care provider or insurance, you can schedule an appointment with the back-to-school immunization clinics offered by Frederick County Health Department from August 1 to August 31 . You may schedule your child's appointment by calling 301-600-3342. The immunizations will be provided at the health department building, located at 350 Montevue Lane.
Many children have already received the required immunizations from their healthcare provider during their well-child visits. However, double check your child’s record before school starts to avoid being excluded from school!
