New Indiana laws taking effect Monday allow pharmacists to offer more immunizations and let people convicted of most felonies and misdemeanors to petition to have their record expunged if they haven't re-offended in several years.
The criminal record law means expunged convictions would no longer show up in public records.
Sometimes this will be automatic, but for others it will be up to a judge while others will need approval from prosecutors.
The new immunization law allows pharmacists to provide shots against pneumonia, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, HPV infections, and meningitis.
It also lowers the age limit to 11 for those receiving vaccines from pharmacists.
