Parents: It's Time to Immunize
Documentation of immunization is required for children entering kindergarten children entering seventh grade, and for new students transferring into schools in Fairfax County.
The Fairfax County Health Department offers school-required immunizations at the Joseph Willard Health Center. Please call ahead to make an appointment. Several community clinics will also take place in spring and summer 2020. Please see the Childhood Immunizations page for dates, locations and how to schedule an appointment.
Parents should bring the child's immunization record and insurance card to the clinic. If your immunization records are not in English, please seek the assistance of an appropriate translator to translate your record. Without an immunization record in English, your child may need to restart his or her immunization series. How do I find my child's immunization record?
