New Immunization Requirements for the 2016-17 School Year

ATTENTION Parents of 8th and 12th grade students:

Affton School District would like to make you aware that the State of Missouri has new immunization requirements for the 2016-17 school year.

Beginning August 2016:

  • Grade 8 – All eighth grade students are required to have Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines.
  • Grade 12 – All seniors are required to have 2 doses of the Meningococcal vaccine unless the first dose was administered to a student who was 16 years of age or older, in which case only one dose is required.

A full list of the 2016-2017 Missouri School Immunization Requirements can be found here.

This notice is to give you ample time to see that your student(s) have received the required immunization before the beginning of the 2016-17 school year.  Your child may receive this vaccine from your doctor, health clinic, or the St. Louis County Health Department (314-615-0400).

When your student has received this vaccine, please provide proof of immunization to your school nurse.  This must be provided before the beginning of the 2016-17 school year.
