Parents of school-age children, who are enrolled in or about to enter Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) will have additional opportunities to obtain the required vaccinations for their children at immunization hubs starting Saturday, September 26, followed by additional dates. All of these events are free of charge. It is particularly important that children receive routine vaccinations during this COVID-19 pandemic to protect them from preventable diseases and outbreaks.
M-DCPS’ Comprehensive Student Health Services is facilitating immunization hubs around the county beginning Saturday, September 26, 2020 and several additional opportunities throughout the coming weeks. Please see the attached flier for ALL available dates and locations.
Students attending school in Miami-Dade County, including those who opted for distance learning, must have a certificate of immunization showing they have been vaccinated against polio, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough (pertussis) (DTaP), hepatitis B, and varicella (chicken pox).
