Frequently Asked Questions
- How can I get immunizations for my child? We recommend going to your child’s doctor. If you do not have a medical provider, have Medicaid insurance, or do not have medical insurance that covers immunizations, you can come to our T.I.K.E. (To Immunize Kids Everywhere) Clinics. We encourage you to call for an appointment at 410-396-4454. [TIKE Clinic Schedule July 2018]
- How can I make sure my child will meet their school’s immunization requirements? All children and young adults need to have an up-to-date copy of their immunization record to be enrolled in licensed day care or in school. If you would like assistance in determining whether or not your child has their required immunizations, please bring their shot record to their school’s health suite, your child’s doctor, or to our TIKE clinic.
