Missouri students are required to be up-to-date on vaccines before attending school.

To help parents knock one more thing off of their to-do list, we’re offering back-to-school immunizations at our Independence clinic (313 S Liberty St) from July 18 to September 9.

If you have a student entering Kindergarten, 8th, or 12th grade, or a student needing to get caught up on other immunizations, make an appointment with us!

Important Information:

  • Appointments are required. Walk-ins will not be taken. Our clinic gets busier as school approaches, so make your appointment early to beat the rush.
     
  • Please bring your child’s immunization record to the appointment + show up no more than 15 minutes early. Students may only be accompanied by one parent or guardian.
     
  • Click here for a list of required school vaccinations.
     
  • We accept most insurance plans. If we do not accept your plan, contact your insurance provider to verify your out-of-network benefits. If you do not have insurance, there will be a flat $15 administration fee per child for the visit.
     
  • If you have questions, please contact our nurses at (816) 404-6415.
     
  • Graphic: Back-to-School Immunization Guide. Children entering kindergarten need their MMR, Chicken Pox, DTaP, Polio, and Hep A booster.

Those entering eighth grade need to be up-to-date on their Tetanus (or TDaP) and Meningitis (or MCV4) vaccines.

Those entering twelfth grade need to have received their Meningitis booster. 

Some immunizations are not required but are recommended for this age group. Those recommended shots are the COVID-19 vaccine for ages 6 months+ and the HPV vaccine for ages 9+.
