Back to school vaccinations available in Joplin

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

The first day of school in Joplin is August 20.  Now is the perfect time to get vaccinated!

The Joplin City Health Department has vaccinations required for school.  We want to help you make sure your child is prepared.  If your child lives within the Joplin city limits, or is enrolled in a Joplin public or private school, we want to offer assistance.  Bring in your immunization record, and allow us to review it.  If your child is behind on vaccinations, we will let you know.

We provide immunizations for the uninsured or underinsured, and those with Medicaid. 

The Joplin Health Department has available all vaccinations that are recommended by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) through the Vaccines for Children program. We also have available – in a limited quantity – Tdap vaccine regardless of your insurance status.  This Tdap is required for entry into the 8th grade. 

Avoid the back to school rush and call 417-623-6122 now to schedule an appointment during our regularly scheduled Tuesday and Thursday immunization clinics BEFORE school starts.  Vaccinations will also be available on the first day of school (Aug. 20), and be given on a walk-in basis, from 8:30 am to 11:15 am and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Immunizations will be given in the upper level entrance (West side) of the Joplin Health Department, 321 E. Fourth Street.  Please note that a parent/guardian ID and the child’s Social Security Number and immunization record is required, so bring them with you to the clinic.
