COVID-19 Vaccinations Available for Ages 12 and Up
As our community strives to achieve herd immunity, vaccinating children ages 12 and up is a critical step towards achieving that goal and will help to keep our schools healthy places to learn. We encourage everyone 12 years of age and older to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Many locations offer same-day appointments, and some even have walk in availability. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or another adult at all community vaccination sites.
Parent Technology Help Desk
The Parent Technology Help Desk will continue to support parents and students through the summer months. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
