**Immunizations Required for School - Part 2** (7/25/19)

In case you found the email from FCPS yesterday confusing, we edited it to make it a little easier to understand. Again, if your child is a patient and is up-to-date on well visits, they are very likely already immunized and do not need to come in. Please email forms@thepedcenter.com or call 301-662-0133 to request a copy of your child's immunization records.

The following immunizations are required for the 2019-2020 school year:

  • 2 doses of Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine for any student who has reached the 5th birthday, including Pre-K students
  • 2 doses of Varicella vaccine for entry into kindergarten (and for new enrollees)
  • 1 dose of Tetanus-Diptheria-Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine for entry into 7th (and for new enrollees)
  • 1 dose of Meningococcal vaccine for entry into 7th (and for new enrollees)

The flu vaccine, which we will not have until Sept/Oct is NOT a required vaccine for admission to FCPS.
