Don’t forget to schedule an appointment for those dreaded school vaccinations! It’s the rule if you go to school!
No decision is more important than protecting your child from childhood diseases.
Children entering a Mississippi school (from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade) for the first time are required to have had the following vaccinations.
- Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (DTaP)
- Polio (IPV)
- Hepatitis B
- Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
- Chickenpox (Varicella)
If your child is entering the seventh grade, either by advancing or transferring in, a pertussis (Tdap) booster is now required if they have not received a Tdap vaccination since the age of seven.
