Welcome to the Office of Health Services

Our goal is to support every student’s academic program by removing barriers to learning. We work with teachers, principals, parents and outside support staff to meet students’ medical and health needs by performing state-mandated screenings and maintaining immunization compliance and safety procedures set forth by the state. Our Office strives to work collaboratively for every District student’s well-being, growth and educational success.

Philly Teen Vaxx

The Philadelphia Department of Health (PDPH), in collaboration with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the Black Doctors COVID Consortium, invites all teenage students to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine at upcoming teen centered events.

Starting May 14th, teenage students can receive the two-dose Pfizer vaccine at teen-led vaccination events taking place at convenient locations throughout Philadelphia. Teens can register themselves and do not need to be accompanied by an adult to receive the vaccine.

ELECT Program

The School District of Philadelphia’s ELECT Program supports pregnant and parenting students of any gender, under 22 years old. ELECT provides free, comprehensive services that young parents need to achieve their highest potential personally and academically, so they can be successful as they achieve
