Students In DC Must Be Vaccinated By Next School Year

Students in DC schools must be vaccinated next school year to be allowed in city classrooms.

If you have kids that attend school in the District, city officials say your children will have to have all of their vaccinations if they want to attend school next year, and that includes Covid vaccinations for those eligible.
Students will have to be vaccinated by the 20th day from the start of the school year. The mayor says today’s announcement gives parents and guardians plenty of time to have all vaccinations for their children taken care of.  Officials say virtual learning will not be made available for those who are not vaccinated. Requirements will apply to private and charter schools.
