• Immunization clinics, requirements and supporting documents (reminder)

    Principals and assistant principals / Deadline: September 30
    Please remember that students who are out of compliance with immunization requirements are also not eligible for funding. Schools with students who are funding eligible but for whom immunization documentation has not been received and entered into Infinite Campus by September 30 will not receive funding for those students for 2016-17.
    The Baltimore City Health Department will hold immunization clinics for City Schools students on September 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:

    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.
