The Department of Health and Human Services is offering free vaccinations this month to help ensure students are in compliance with certain state requirements.

These walk-in clinics are for students entering grades 7, 8, 9 and 10 who need proof of vaccinations against Tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) and Meningococcal meningitis (MCV4) before the 2017-2018 school year starts.

Students who are not in compliance with these requirements will not be allowed to attend school until they provide documentation of Tdap and MCV immunizations.

A copy of the child’s immunization record must be presented to staff to receive vaccinations.

A free clinic is open tomorrow (Aug. 9) from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Silver Spring Health Center, 8630 Fenton St., 10th Floor.

Vaccinations also will available in the same location at the same time next Wednesday, Aug. 16.

For more information on immunizations, call the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services’ Immunization Program at 240-777-1050 or School Health Services at 240-777-1550.
