Support for student immunizations
Deadline: September 30
The Baltimore City Health Department will hold immunization clinics for City Schools students on September 16, 23, and 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at 620 N. Caroline Street.
To attend, schools must schedule a time for their students by calling Rose Jefferson at 410-396-4454. If the parent/guardian accompanies the student to the health clinic, a copy of the child’s vaccine record will be necessary, although the parent can complete the screening checklist prior to arriving at the clinic. If the parent/guardian does not accompany the student, the following forms must be completed:
- Parental delegation of consent form naming the supervising person the school will send to the clinic
- Confirmation form completed by the supervising person
- Screening checklist for vaccine contraindications completed by the parent
Please note that these forms are in addition to field-trip permission forms. Students will not be immunized if forms are not fully completed. Students who are 18 years of age or older may legally consent to treatment/vaccination on their own.
Immunizations can also be given at school-based health centers. Students should make an appointment with the center to ensure that the appropriate vaccines are available. All students already enrolled in the school-based health center can be immunized; other students enrolled at the school that houses the health center can receive immunizations if a parent/guardian accompanies them and enrolls them in the school-based health center.
Note: Students ages 11 and up can also receive immunizations at many local pharmacies, including those listed here by zip code.
