Student Health Forms and Immunization Records

This year the District of Columbia implemented a new requirement that all students attending school have up to date immunization records. 

Families have 20 school days to provide up to date immunization records for their students following the start of school. If we do not receive your student’s records, we will be required to remove the student from in-person attendance until you provide these records.  

At or following your student’s annual appointment, your student’s doctor will fill out and provide you with a Universal Health Certificate. Please return it to your school’s front office staff – they will make sure that a copy is uploaded to the student’s record and submitted to the school nurse for inclusion in the District of Columbia Immunization Information System.

If you do not have a primary care provider, you can find one here, or for assistance scheduling an appointment with Mary’s Center contact Luisa Millan (lmillan@elhaynes.org).

When your records are available, you can scan, take a clear picture of each page, or drop off a copy to your school. If you are able to send electronic files, please send them to your school’s receptionist: 

If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Operations Kristin Yochum.

Help us create a more just and kind world.
