The State of Missouri has specific immunization requirements for school attendance.
The requirement for 8th grade attendance now includes one dose of the Tdap vaccine AND one dose of the Meningitis (MCV4) vaccine.
Students entering 12th grade are also required to have a another dose of the Meningitis (MCV4) vaccine.
Your child will not be allowed to attend school without proof of receiving the required vaccinations. Please provide documentation to the school nurse as soon as your child receives them.
If you have questions about the immunizations your child needs for school attendance, you may refer to Regulation 2850, or contact your child's school nurse or the Stone County Health Department (417-272-0050/417-357-6134).
