The IN State Dept. of Health has released the new immunization requirements for school in a 2 year plan to help you plan for what is needed for school.
What this means for students:
6th graders need shots for attending school in the fall. Tdap and MCV4 are required. Hep A should be started for the requirement the following year.
Current juniors need the second MCV4 for senior year, and MenB is recommended along with Hep A. Please call your provider now, as these changes impact doctor’s offices and appointment availability. Seniors are expected to have the shots the first day of school, as there is ample time to obtain the immunizations.
