The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services recently revised the Code of State Regulations, Immunization Requirements for School Children.
* * Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (Meningitis/MCV) and TDAP will be required for all incoming 8th grade students.
* * All incoming 12th grade students will be required to have two doses of MCV (Meningitis) UNLESS the first dose was administered to a student who was 16 years of age or older, in which case only one dose shall be required.
The Stone County Health Department will be coming to our school on March 29, 2016, to administer these shots to students (with signed permission form from parent/guardian). *Forms must be turned into Nurse Debbie by March 19. For those without insurance, the cost will be $15 for both shots.
Please call Nurse Debbie at 417-723-5300 ext. 6 or the Stone County Health Department at 417-357-6134 with questions.
