With the school year just around the corner, the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) is offering a one-stop shop for required entry/registration forms.
The two-week event will take place Monday, July 24 through Friday, August 4 at the MSDH’s Office of Vital Records in Ridgeland and allow parents to get a copy of their child’s Form 121 (shot record) if the child is up to date on immunization requirements, as well as their birth certificate. Both documents are required prior to school entry.
Save time! Our Vital records office in Ridgeland is offering one-stop pickup of birth certificates and immunization form 121 today through August 4 if your child is up to date on immunizations. 222 Marketridge Drive, Ridgeland from 8 a.m. to 4. pm. weekdays. pic.twitter.com/zZ8CYVuSD9

During the one-stop shop event, a child’s Form 121 will be available for free. It can also be printed through www.MyIRMobile.com. A new birth certificate will cost $17 with additional certified copies available for $6.
Mississippi state law requires children to be immunized against childhood diseases in order to attend public or private school, Head Start, or daycare. There are also required immunizations for 7th-grade entry. That being said, religious exemptions are now available in Mississippi, following a federal judge’s ruling in April.
The MSDH’s Office of Vital Records is located at 222 Marketridge Drive, Ridgeland, Mississippi 39157.
