2021-2022 Missouri School Immunization Requirements

  • All students must present documentation of up-to-date immunization status, including month, day and year of each immunization before attending school.
  • The advisory Committee on immunization Practices allows a 4-day grace period. Students in all grade levels may receive immunizations up to four days before the due date.
  • For children beginning kindergarten during or after the 2003-04 school year, required immunizations should be administered according to the current Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices Schedule, including all spacing, (http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/index.html).
  • To remain in school, students "in progress" must have an Immunization In Progress form (Imm.P.14), which includes the appointment date for needed immunizations, on file and must receive immunizations as soon as they become due. The student is in compliance as long as he/she continues to receive the appropriate immunization(s) at the correct intervals according to the ACIP recommendations.
  • In progress means that a child has begun the vaccine series and has an appointment for the next dose. This appointment must be kept and an updated record provided to the school. If the appointment is not kept, the child is no longer in progress and is non-compliant. (i.e., Hep B vaccine series was started but the child is not yet eligible to receive the next dose in the series.)
  • Religious (Imm.P.11A) and Medical (Imm.P.12) exemptions are allowed. The appropriate exemption card must be on file. Unimmunized children are subject to exclusion from school when outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases occur.
