Back to School Immunizations
The first day of school is right around the corner for Mississippi children and back to school immunizations have never been more important.
Routine preventative care, such as vaccinations and well child visits, declined this spring due to the pandemic, shelter in place orders and general parental concern about possibly exposing children to COVID-19 for routine doctor’s appointments.
If your child has missed an immunization or well child visit, now is the time to get their wellness on track. Children and communities that aren’t properly vaccinated face increased risk for outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases.
Use our interactive preventive wellness guide to view services, screenings and immunizations recommended for your child based on age and gender guidelines.
Doctor’s offices follow stringent requirements from the CDC and Mississippi State Department of Health to ensure Mississippians can safely receive the care they need while protecting staff and other patients.
