Missouri has specific immunization requirements for school attendance.
State law requires that students receive the Tdap and MCV4 (meningitis) vaccines before they enter eighth grade. Now is the time to make sure your child has received these required immunizations. You must provide this documentation to the school before your child starts the new school year.
State law requires that students receive a second dose of the Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine prior to the start of their senior year. You must provide documentation of receiving this immunization to the high school nurse before the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
If you have questions about immunizations, you may contact the school nurse on or after August 5. Prior to that, you can contact the Stone County Health Department at 417-272-0050.
