Local County Health Departments to Hold Special Adolescent Immunization Walk-In Clinics
August 1, 2019

  [close]

Many Mississippi State Department of Health county health departments will hold special school registration immunization clinics for adolescents ages 10-17 in the next few days in preparation for the start of a new school year. All clinics are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. No appointment will be necessary. Clinic dates are as follows, with links to location information:

Friday, August 2nd

Monday, August 5th

Tuesday, August 6th

Wednesday, August 7th

Friday, August 9th

During these clinics, the health department will have additional nursing staff available to provide adolescent immunizations so that parents can complete the process quickly and efficiently. Parents should bring a copy of their child’s immunization record.

Mississippi state law requires children to be immunized against childhood diseases to enter public or private school, Head Start or daycare. There are required vaccinations for first-time school entry in Mississippi as well as a requirement for students entering 7th grade.

“A Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) booster vaccination is required for those entering seventh grade. To make sure your adolescent is completely protected, we also recommend they get the HPV (human papillomavirus) and meningococcal vaccinations at the same time,” said MSDH State Epidemiologist Dr. Paul Byers.

Parents must provide the school with a Certificate of Immunization Compliance (Form 121) from their immunization provider prior to school entry.

You may check with your physician or county health department if you have questions about which immunizations your child will need. Childhood vaccinations are available at county health departments by appointment.
