“Church Policies and Announcements,” Ensign, Dec. 1979, 70
The following items appeared in a recent Messages, sent to stake/mission/district presidents and to bishops and branch presidents:
“Mission Immunization Requirements. Newly called missionaries receive an information sheet specifying both those immunizations they should receive before reporting to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) and those they will receive while at the MTC. However, many missionaries are reporting to the MTC without receiving the required immunizations. Acquiring such immunizations is time consuming for both the missionaries and the MTC staff and often disrupts the training program. Furthermore, some immunizations are given in series, and the brief period of residency at the MTC sometimes prevents completion of the series.
“Bishops and branch presidents should review the immunization requirements with all newly called missionaries and their parents.”
