    It's almost time to get your children ready for class again. To help you prepare, Prince George's County Public Schools is offering free immunization clinics for students. 

    The clinics are only for students entering kindergarten and seventh grade. Students who are repeating ninth grade are also eligible to participate in the free immunization clinics.

    Kindergarteners in the state are required to get a second dose of the chickenpox vaccine, while students in the seventh grade must get the vaccination for Meningococcal and Tdap, which protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis.

    Students who are missing required immunizatoins will be excluded from school on the first day.

    There are some exceptions. Students with medical conditions or religious beliefs that prevent them from getting vaccinated can apply for an exemption.

    The clinics will be held on the following dates:
