Area Children Lack Immunizations | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

According to the Washington Post, many Maryland students still lack immunization shots necessary to attend class.   At least 3,851 students were barred from schools in Prince George’s County. Ensuring that your child has up-to-date immunizations is one of the ways parents can help students achieve their best.  Immunizations benefit students because they prevent the spread of harmful infections such as chicken pox, whooping cough and measles.  Many childhood diseases, can be prevented with the following immunizations:

  • MMR – protects against measles, mumps and rubella
  • IPV – protects against polio
  • DTP – protects against diphtheria, lockjaw and whooping cough
  • Hib vaccine- protects against hemophilus influenza type b ( causes spinal meningitis)
  • HBV- protects against hepatitis B
  • Varicella – protects against chicken pox

As previously reported by Regan Zambri and Long on the D.C. Medical Malpractice Blog,  Maryland recently updated its immunization requirements for school age children and college students.  The new requirements can be found at the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene websiteVaccine requirements charts are also available on the site.
