The Raytown School District's Health Services Department is partnering with county health officials to coordinate immunization clinics for district families at all middle schools and high schools on Friday, March 2, 2018.
In 2016, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Bureau of Immunization Assessment and Assurance announced several changes to the immunization requirements for Missouri students. The following changes are listed below:
- All 8th-grade students are required to have one dose of Meningococcal vaccine.
- All 12th-grade students are required to have two doses of Meningococcal vaccine unless the first dose was administered when the student was 16 years of age or older.
- As a reminder, all 8th grade through 12th-grade students must have evidence of 1 dose of Tdap.
If you would like for your student to receive the Meningococcal, HPV, or Tdap vaccine during the offered clinic, please fill out the consent form at https://jacohd.org/schools by no later than February 28, 2018.
Students will be able to obtain vaccines from their personal health care providers if preferred. It is important to remember that students will not be allowed to enroll in the 2018-2019 school year without providing proof of all required immunizations.
