All students entering the 7th Grade must show proof of the TDaP vaccination by presenting an updated Mississippi Health Compliance Form 121. The TDaP vaccination provides protection against tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough (pertussis), a highly contagious disease that can be severe or fatal, especially in very young children.

Parents may upload the Health Compliance Form 121 during online registration, or provide the school a copy of the Health Compliance Form 121 as proof of vaccination. The local Health Department or your private physician provides this at the time of your child’s vaccination.
