The 2017-2018 school year is just around the corner, as parents are preparing their children for school, Maryland Partnership for Prevention and Kaiser Permanente Largo Medical Center are doing their part to ensure all students are immunized.

Maryland State law requires all students enrolled in public schools from prekindergarten through grade 12 to receive immunizations. Before children can enter kindergarten, they must receive two doses of chickenpox vaccine or Varicella. Seventh graders will need two vaccines, meningitis and Tdap.
