Helping Parents Get a Jump-Start on Back-to-School Immunizations

Between shopping for school supplies, adjusting to new routines, and ensuring students are caught up on immunizations, back-to-school season can be a hectic time for many families.

To make the back-to-school immunizations process easier for parents, our nurses are traveling to Eastern Jackson County schools from now until mid-May. Nurses will provide required immunizations (Tdap and MCV4) to incoming 8th and 12th-grade students during school hours, so students can conveniently receive their vaccines and parents can save a trip. 

Parents and guardians can register their students for these clinics by using the link provided by their school nurse. Registration must be completed at least 72 hours before the scheduled visit. Students must be registered in advance; walk-ins will not be accepted.

Clinic Schedule Flyer

Missouri requires students entering 8th grade to receive their Tdap and MCV4 vaccines; students entering 12th grade are required to receive another dose of MCV4. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and the HPV vaccine, which are optional but recommended, will also be available.

A separate clinic for exchange students and students needing to get caught up on other immunizations is available at the Jackson County Health Department in Independence. Parents/guardians can make an appointment here.
