802.1s was approved in 2002 and incorporated into 802.1Q (i.e., it is
not a separate standard, but a supplement to Q).
Similarly, 802.1p was approved long ago and incorporated into 802.1D.
If you have the latest editions of 802.1D/Q, you automatically have .1p
and .1s. By the way, you can always tell when a document is "standalone"
vs "supplement"; standalone documents get uppercase designations
(.1D/.1Q), while supplements get lowercase ones (.1p/.1s).
