Baltimore City Public Schools won't allow students to attend class without immunization vaccines starting Monday. 

School officials said all students must be up to date with immunizations in order to sign up for, or attend, school. 

In order to assist with getting students vaccinated, 17 city schools with heath centers are offering free vaccinations.  

Students do not have to attend those schools, but will be asked to complete a form

Vaccinations can also be completed at most local pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens or Rite Aid. 

Students in every school in Maryland must have vaccinations done within 20 days into the school year.
