New Immunization Requirement for 7th Grade Entry

7th Grade Immunization

In addition to previously required vaccinations, The Mississippi Department of Health will require an additional Tdap vaccination for all students entering the 7th grade beginning in the 2012-2013 school year. A new compliance "Form No.121" will be required at registration this summer for all entering 7th grade. The Pearl River County Health Department will have several "shot clinics" to assist this process. For further information please call the Pearl River County Health Department at 601-798-6212. For more information regarding this new immunization requirement please visit The Mississippi Department of Health's web site at www.msdh.state.ms.us
