Tetnus booster due before school starts

Friday, August 15, 2014

Nevada Daily Mail

Parents are reminded that the state of Missouri requires all entering eighth grade students to receive the updated tetanus booster known as the "Tdap" before the first day of school in August and to present verification to the school.

These immunizations can be obtained at the Vernon County Health Department located at 301 N. Washington St. in Nevada, and can be billed to most insurance providers, or the vaccine can be obtained through your local physician.

If parents believe that their child may be exempt from this requirement, please contact the Nevada Middle School nurse prior to the first day of school at 417-448-2040.
