To protect against many common, life-threatening diseases, the State of Missouri requires children to be immunized with specific vaccines before entering or continuing education in all public and some private schools. All immunization records must be up-to-date (with documentation for the month, day, and year of each vaccination) before a child is permitted to attend classes. To help parents meet these requirements, the Immunization Clinic schedules vaccination programs on an appointment basis.
A complete list of Missouri’s vaccination requirements for school children is available online.
Preschool & Daycare Requirements
State statutes also require an up-to-date immunization record for children entering public and private daycare centers or preschools. An updated list of the immunizations required may be obtained online.
