The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) now requires the Tdap vaccination for all students entering 7th grade.
Students entering 7th grade will not be allowed to attend school without providing an updated immunization record, referred to as a Form 121 Immunization document showing all required immunizations, including the Tdap vaccination.
The required Tdap vaccination and other recommended vaccinations are available at the Neshoba County Health Department and most health clinics.
Parents should provide a copy of their child's updated immunization form to Neshoba Central Middle School prior to the start of the 2013-2014 school year. Please bring your child's Form 121 Immunization document to the school office. Thank you in advance for your efforts as we prepare for a smooth start of school in August.
The new immunization requirement was adopted int 2012 by the Mississippi Department of Health.
