Vaccinations Requirements for Students Entering Grade 7, Kindergarten, and New to Montgomery County Public Schools


All students entering Grade 7 or Kindergarten, or who are new to Montgomery County
Public Schools (MCPS), must provide documentation of vaccinations.

Vaccination records are being verified remotely by Montgomery County Department of
Health and Human Services (DHHS) staff member.
Families may email their child’s vaccination records to and copy the school’s registrar or attendance
DHHS free back-to-school vaccination clinic schedule:
Student and Family Support and Engagement staff members are collaborating with the
Student Well-being Teams to reach out to families and students about the importance of
vaccinations and the state requirements.
Students will need to be vaccinated and have those certificates verified in order to return
to in-person instruction when MCPS makes that transition.
During a healthcare pandemic, vaccinations against typical childhood illnesses are
extremely important to help protect students from getting sick.
