Immunization certificate must be completed for school

Students attending Maryland schools must show compliance with immunization requirements by giving the school principal a completed Maryland immunization certificate.

Students enrolling for the first time in the Maryland public school system must also have a physical examination within nine months before or six months after entry into school.

Howard County public schools encourage parents to check their child's health record for compliance with health forms and have their physician or Health Department complete the form before school starts.

This year, the Howard County Health Department will offer free immunizations at five Howard County high schools this month and next.

Clinics will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.: Aug. 28 at River Hill High School; Sept. 4 at Centennial High School; Sept. 11 at Wilde Lake High School; Sept. 25 at Long Reach High School; Oct. 9 at Oakland Mills High School; Oct. 23 at Hammond High School; Nov. 20 at Wilde Lake High School; and Dec. 18 at Centennial High School.
