ATTENTION: Parents of 6th Graders Vaccination required for all students entering 7th grade ALL students entering the 7th grade for the upcoming school year must show proof of the TDaP vaccination by presenting an updated Mississippi FORM 121 Certificate of Immunization Compliance. Please make sure ALL vaccines are listed on the same FORM 121. Do not bring an updated FORM 121 listing only the new TDaP vaccine. This includes new students, current students, and transfer students in both public and private schools. The TDaP vaccination provides protection against tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough (pertussis), a highly contagious disease that can be severe or fatal especially in young children. Your doctor or other health care provider can arrange a TDaP vaccination for you and should provide the required FORM 121 certificate at the time of your child’s vaccination. You can also visit any county health department to receive the TDaP vaccination. The Lee County Health Department is located at 532 S Church Street in Tupelo. Their phone number is 662-841-9096. The Monroe County Health Department is located at 1300 MS-25 in Amory. Their phone number is 662-256-5341. Their hours are 8:00am - 5pm on Monday through Friday, and you must make an appointment. Vaccines for Children (VFC) providers and county health departments throughout the state provide the TDaP vaccination for $10 per child. The TDaP vaccine is covered for children with Medicaid at the County Health Department. Again, EVERY student entering seventh grade must have documentation (FORM 121) from a physician verifying they have a recent TDaP vaccination in order to return to school in August. More information about this vaccination can be found at www.cdc.gov.
