Think ahead for kindergarten enrollment - Health Dept. offers immunizations

The Joplin City Health Department has vaccinations required for your child to begin kindergarten.  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.  

We provide immunizations for many insurances, the uninsured or underinsured, and those with Medicaid/Managed Care.  

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 have all of the vaccines required for entry into kindergarten.  

We urge you to obtain vaccinations now before the Kindergarten round-up begins. Call now to schedule an appointment. 

Immunizations will be given at 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 insurance information and immunization record are required, so bring them with you to the clinic.
