As Montgomery County grapples with a whooping cough outbreak, health officials are offering free immunizations to seventh grade students this week, part of a continuing effort to get students in line with new state requirements.

Students who do not show documentation of immunizations before a Friday deadline could be excluded from school starting Monday, officials said.

The vaccinations, offered by the county’s Department of Health and Human Services, are open to any student in grade 7 who still needs a Tdap or meningococcal vaccine.

On Sept. 9, 10, and 11, clinics offering vaccinations will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at nine schools. Here’s the schedule:

Tuesday, Sept. 9

- Roberto Clemente Middle School, 18808 Waring Station Road, Germantown
