    (and 11th Grade Guardians)


    The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services recently revised the Missouri School Immunization Requirements, specifically for current 7th and 11th graders.  Beginning with the 2016 – 2017 school year, the following immunizations will be required:

    • For all incoming 8th grade students, one Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) vaccine will be required if the student has not received a Td booster since August 2015. In addition, one meningococcal vaccine (meningitis) will be required.
    • For all incoming 12th grade students, two doses of meningitis vaccine (MCV) will be required unless the first dose was administered at age 16 or over, in which case only one dose will be required. The first and second dose of this vaccine must be separated by 8 weeks.

    If your child has received a recent Tdap and/or meningitis vaccine, please send proof of the immunization to your school nurse or have the health care provider fax the immunization record to the school nurse at 214-3241.

    If your child has not received these vaccines, the immunizations need to be completed before they can attend 2017 summer school and /or receive schedules for the 2017-2018 school year in August. 

    Immunizations are available from:

    • Local health care providers
    • Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services, 1005 W. Worley, no appointment necessary; M-F 8-4:30.

    For questions regarding your child’s vaccination history, please call your school nurse at 214-3246.
