New 2020-2021 Immunization Requirements for ALL High School Students!!!

This is the first year the state of Indiana has required the Hepatitis A series for school attendance for all high school students. There are 2 shots in this series. Some of the physicians may already have your student up-to-date, but the majority do not. 

IN ADDITION - All seniors must have had their 2nd meningitis shot.  NOTE this is another MCV4, not the meningitis B shot which is recommended but not required.

All students are required to have current immunization records prior to the beginning of the school year, according to IC 20-34-4 in the Indiana State code.
