    • Immunization Requirements

      As school districts across the state work towards reopening, we remind families that all students must be up to date on state-mandated immunizations prior to returning to school. Please note these requirements have not been waived due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

      We encourage families to act now to ensure students have the immunizations they need to attend school. Due to the mass COVID vaccination clinics being conducted by the Prince George’s County Health Department, immunization clinics are not being held at this time. The organizations listed below provide immunizations for a small fee.

      Families with insurance should make vaccination appointments with their child’s pediatrician. 

      Please visit the PGCPS immunization website for more information.
