Immunizations

A copy of your immunization record is required to be on file at the Henry Wise Wellness Center.

REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS

If you received a  mass email indicating that your immunization records were missing, please contact the Wellness Center at 301-860-4170 for additional information, before a hold is placed on registration. The email serves as a warning that important information is missing.  Holds will be placed on registration after October 2013 if immunization records have not been received by the deadline.
