Can the school system require COVID-19 vaccinations for students?

At this time, the COVID-19 vaccine is not approved for those under the age of 16. Immunization requirements are determined by the Maryland Department of Health. Any change to what is currently required will be posted online and shared with HCPSS families.

HCPSS staff are strongly encouraged to receive the COVID-19 vaccine but will not be required as a condition of employment or to enter an HCPSS building.
