All children must have all the necessary protection against the following diseases before the child can attend School: diphtheria, polio, measles, rubella, mumps, Hib, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A, varicella, Tdap, and meningococcal.

In addition, it is highly recommended that each student be vaccinated yearly for the prevention of influenza. Contact your family physician/clinic to make sure immunizations are up-to-date. Mission CISD strongly urges all parents to make sure immunizations are up to date.
