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 July 25 through August 5 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.
Get your child’s immunization form 121 and birth certificate in one visit to the MSDH Vital Records office at 222 Marketridge Dr, Ridgeland starting Monday. Stop by from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 25 – August 5 for children who are up to date on required immunizations. pic.twitter.com/yRU1dLmkNg

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.
The MSDH’s Office of Vital Records is located at 222 Marketridge Drive, Ridgeland, Mississippi 39157.
