Children age 18 years or younger must meet the following criteria:
Beginning January 2014, Montgomery County may charge a vaccine administration fee, based on a sliding fee scale that is set by the State of Maryland, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and is based on family size and family income. A child will not be denied a vaccination based on the inability to pay the administration fee.
1. How do I get a copy of my child’s Immunization record?
First ask your school nurse for a copy of your child's immunization record. Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) maintains an immunization record for each enrolled student. If the record is not available through the school, call 311. The County’s Immunization Program will follow up, may search the State’s Immunization Registry, and will call you back.
2. Where should I call for an appointment for adult vaccinations?
Currently, we do not provide adult vaccinations, but we can provide information on local community clinics that offer vaccinations for a fee. Call 311 for more information.
