Dear Elementary Parents—The IN State Dept. of Health has released the new immunization requirements for school in a 2 year plan to help you plan of what for what is needed for school.
What this means for students:
Current 5th grade students still need to obtain shots for middle school. Tdap and MCV4 are the required shots, and Hepatitis A should be started, if not already complete, in preparation for the following year.
This list of updates means that it is imperative to call your student’s doctor today to schedule an appointment before school starts the end of July. Please do not delay—appointments for well child visits will be necessary and many children in Indianapolis need to have shots. Students are expected to have the necessary shots when school begins.
