Immunization Requirements for 2022-23 school year

Dear Parent/Guardian,


Thank you for your time and your commitment to your child’s health and learning.

Below are resources to make sure your child has all required vaccinations and school health forms for the 2022-2023 school year. The best place for your child to be vaccinated is at the office of their regular doctor, so your child can get a general check-up at the same time. Remember to have your child’s doctor complete the annual school forms, including information about your child’s past vaccinations. You should turn in required health forms to your child’s school as soon as possible.


For additional information on DC School Health services, please see the links below:

Our records of vaccinations may be incomplete. If you have any questions about your child’s vaccination record, please reach out to your child’s school nurse or your child’s health care provider to double check.


If your child’s school does not have records showing that your child has received the required vaccinations or an approved medical or religious exemption, your child will not be allowed to attend school in-person after twenty (20) school days from the start of school.


Please schedule your child’s vaccinations and turn in the required school health forms to the school’s main office as soon as possible.
