Anne Arundel County, MD – To prioritize the health and well-being of students and adults, Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) and the Anne Arundel Department of Health have once again joined forces this summer to provide vaccination clinics at six schools across the county. These clinics aim to offer various vaccines, including the seventh-grade Meningococcal vaccine (Menquadfi), Tdap vaccines, and COVID-19 vaccines.

The vaccination clinics will primarily cater to students entering seventh grade in August and are enrolled in AACPS for the 2023-24 school year. For their convenience, the clinics will also administer COVID-19 vaccines, specifically Pfizer, to county residents aged 5 and older, regardless of their enrollment status in AACPS for the upcoming school year. It is important to note that COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are not mandatory for students to attend AACPS schools.

To streamline the process and ensure a smooth experience, parents or guardians must register their children for each required vaccine. The registration can be completed using specific links provided by the organizers. The clinics will operate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the designated dates.

The vaccination clinics will be held at the following schools on the corresponding dates:

  • Monday, July 24, 2023: Annapolis Middle School
  • Tuesday, July 25, 2023: Lothian Elementary School
  • Monday, July 31, 2023: Freetown Elementary School
  • Tuesday, August 1, 2023: Southgate Elementary School
  • Monday, August 7, 2023: Brock Bridge Elementary School
  • Tuesday, August 8, 2023: Van Bokkelen Elementary School

To ensure the safety of all participants, children must be accompanied by an adult at the vaccination site.
