Required Immunizations for Butler High School Students for ’20-’21 School Year

The state of Missouri has recently made changes to their immunization requirements for school. This change will impact students who will be entering 8th and 12th grade next school year. EIGHTH graders: Will need to have a Tdap AND a Meningitis vaccine. SENIORS: Will need to have 2 doses of the Meningitis vaccine UNLESS the first dose was given on or after their 16th birthday, then only one dose is needed. Students can get these immunizations at the Bates County Health Department or their physician’s office. Proof of immunizations will need to be provided before your student can start back to school in August. DO NOT WAIT- get these now!
