Children entering 7th grade in August are required to have TDaP and MCV4 vaccinations, which protect against tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), and meningitis. See Maryland Vaccine Requirements for Children.
The best place to get back to school vaccinations is at your child’s medical home or pediatrician. Call your child’s pediatrician today for an appointment OR call the Frederick County Health Department at 301-600-3342 for an appointment at our free Back-to-School Clinic scheduled for Wednesday, June 8th, 2022 at 8am-12pm for your rising 7th grader. Appointments are limited and will book fast! Additional clinics to be held during the Summer and will be announced later.
