School Age Children

Missouri School Immunization Requirements
In November 2009, Missouri released their new Immunization guidelines for school children and Day Care. Highlights from these new requirements are as follows:
  

  • Second dose of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine for all children entering kindergarten.
  • If the kindergarten child has had varicella (chickenpox) disease, a licensed doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor of osteopathy (DO) may sign and place on file with the school a written statement documenting the month and year of previous varicella (chickenpox) disease as satisfactory evidence of having had the disease. Parental or guardian statements of disease will no longer be accepted beginning with the 2010-2011 school year for children entering kindergarten.
  • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) vaccine will be required for all incoming eighth (8th) grade students if the child has completed the recommended childhood DTaP/DTP vaccination series and has not received a Td booster within the past two (2) years.
