Montgomery County Hosts Free Spring Back-to-School Vaccination Clinic on March 29

The county’s Department of Health and Human Services will host a free spring “back-to-school” vaccination clinic for children from pre-kindergarten through high school on Friday, March 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dennis Avenue Health Center in Silver Spring.

This clinic aims to provide free vaccinations to school-aged children residing in Montgomery County who have missed any required immunizations.

“It is important to keep children healthy, and ensuring they are up to date on required immunizations should be a top priority,” County Executive Marc Elrich said in a press release. “This is a great opportunity for parents to take advantage of the free vaccinations offered at this upcoming clinic.”

No appointment is necessary. However, a parent or guardian must be present and bring a valid identification document and the child’s immunization record, if available.

The “back-to-school” vaccine offerings include:

  • Tdap
  • Meningococcal (MCV4)
  • Meningococcal B
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Varicella (chickenpox)

The Dennis Avenue Health Center is at 2000 Dennis Ave. in Silver Spring. Residents can contact the DHHS Immunization Program at (240) 777-1050 for any inquiries related to this upcoming clinic.
