As families prepare for the start of School Year 2021-2022, DC Public Schools encourages you to visit your family’s pediatrician for your student’s annual wellness exam. Scheduling an appointment with your child’s doctor will help make sure your child is up-to-date on important immunizations to prevent illness.

District of Columbia policies and regulations require students to submit updated immunization documentation within 20 days of the start of the school year, or they will not be able to attend until those records are received.

We are also encouraging our students ages 12 or older to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is currently not required to attend school next year.

To help families meet these requirements, as well as give them the opportunity to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, immunization pop-up clinics will be open at schools throughout August and September. DCPS school locations and hours of operation are listed below. Visit https://vaccinate.dc.gov/ to learn more and make an appointment, as well as see public charter school clinics.

New hours beginning August 30! Please note new hours for vaccination clinics now that the school year is underway.

Immunization clinics will also be hosted at Friendship Collegiate, Friendship Woodridge, IDEA, Ingenuity Prep, and Thurgood Marshall public charters schools through September 30. DCPS families may select one of these public charter school locations when making an appointment at vaccinate.dc.gov.

The science is clear: vaccines are the single most effective tool we have to stop the spread of the coronavirus, and we are strongly encouraging all of our teachers, staff, students, families, and community members to get vaccinated. Hundreds of thousands of people have already been vaccinated in DC, and the data shows vaccinations are working. We owe it to our community members, including our students, teachers, and school staff, to protect each other by getting vaccinated.

Recently, Mayor Bowser announced new incentives available to DC youth who receive the COVID-19 vaccine.  

Beginning Saturday, August 7, Youth who receive their first dose at Brookland Middle School, Johnson Middle School, or Sousa Middle School clinics can receive a $51 VISA gift card. Additionally, the first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods. The AirPods will be available to District youth ages 12 to 17, as well as students ages 18 to 21 who are currently enrolled in a DC school and seeking a high school diploma.

In addition, all students in DC who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine will also be eligible to win an iPad or a $25,000 college scholarship. Each week, for four weeks, 10 names will be drawn from a database of students between the ages of 12 and 17. Eight names will be drawn to win an iPad and two names will be drawn for a $25,000 college scholarship that can be used at any college. Once student names are drawn, a District representative will reach out to the family to confirm the student’s vaccination status. If the student is already vaccinated, they will be able to claim their prize.

Stay on Track with Childhood Immunizations

While the COVID-19 vaccine is currently not required to attend school next year, students are required to have their childhood immunizations up to date to participate in summer programming and to attend school in the fall. We encourage all families to schedule well-child visits with your medical provider or one of DC’s pediatric immunization locations and submit that documentation now as a part of your student’s enrollment packet.

Beginning Monday, August 2, families will be able to schedule appointments so their students can receive required immunizations through vaccinate.dc.gov.

Appointments will be at participating DCPS and public charter school locations, and families can make an appointment regardless of a student’s school of enrollment. Additionally, families will have the option to add on a COVID-19 vaccine at the time of scheduling. Currently, the COVID-19 vaccine is strongly recommended for all students 12 and older but is not considered a required immunization.

There will be 2,000 appointments available each week at the DCPS pop-up immunization clinics for students to get ready to for the start of school. Appointments will begin on Saturday, August 7 and will run through the end of September.
