Students Need To Be Properly Vaccinated Before Start Of School

Indiana health officials are reminding parents that students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade need to have a record documenting two valid doses of the chickenpox vaccine or a documented history of having the childhood disease.

Indiana has had multiple chickenpox outbreaks during the past school year.

Officials hope that the new requirement will help stop the spread of the disease.

Although not required, there are other recommendations from the health department for other vaccines:

Two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine;

A flu vaccine every year;

Human papilloma virus vaccine for all adolescents;

And a booster dose of meningitis vaccine for adolescents ages 16-18.
