Effective the first day of school, September 3, 2019, 1 dose of Tdap vaccine and 1 dose of Meningococcal vaccine are required by the state of Maryland for all students entering Grade 7. If we DO NOT receive proof of immunization, your child will be excluded from school.
Many students may have already received these immunizations, but the Health Room may not have the updated immunization record. Please contact your child’s doctor to schedule an appointment before the start of 2019-2020 school year to receive the mandatory vaccines and/or send in an updated copy of your child’s immunizations to the Health Room. The fax # is (410) 799-8201 or you may email a copy to Tracy_Jerome@hcpss.org.
Mayfield Woods Middle School has been chosen to participate in the annual health department immunization clinic for rising 7th grade students this year. This is an opportunity for your student to receive the required vaccines to begin 7th grade. Our clinic date is May 14th. If your student has been identified as still needing the required vaccines, you should have received a letter that was sent home with your student before spring break. Please return these consent forms as soon as possible if you are interested in participating. For your convenience a copy of the consent form is attached here as well.
BE WELL MAYFIELD!
