Vaccinations: Stay on Track

Now more than ever, it’s important that your child receives all immunizations on time.

District law and regulations require schools in the District of Columbia to verify student compliance with the pediatric immunization requirements as part of enrollment and attendance.

You may call the school to find out if your student has an updated health form (202-939-5390). You may also email your current health form to Ms. Emma (emma.amaya@k12.dc.gov).
