State Reminding Residents Not To Forget Immunizations For Back-To-School
Thursday, August 15, 2019

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is reminding parents that immunizations are an essential part of getting ready to go back to school.

School immunization requirements have changed for the 2019-20 school year. Two doses of the hepatitis A vaccine are now required for grades K-7 and 12. Two doses are recommended for all other grades.

In addition to these requirements, ISDH also encourages parents to make sure that their child is current with all recommended vaccines, including: an annual influenza vaccine, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, two doses of the meningococcal serogroup B (MenB) vaccine for students entering grade 12. Some Indiana universities require this vaccine for incoming students.
A complete list of Indiana school immunization requirements is available at www.state.in.us/isdh/17094.htm. The requirements and recommendations align with the routine vaccination schedules from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
