Are you immunized?
The Howard County Public School System is reminding students that they must meet state immunization requirements by giving school principals a completed Maryland Immunization Certificate.
Children enrolling in Maryland's public schools for the first time are also required to have a physical exam no later than six months after entering school. Physicals given within the past nine months are acceptable.
Physical examination forms are available at county schools.
