To protect against vaccine-preventable 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 school. To help parents meet these requirements, the Immunization Clinic provides all recommended vaccines.
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.
