Immunization Update


May 16, 2011

 

Dear Parent/guardian:

 

During the legislative session, Indiana code 20-34-4-2 was revised, requiring the
Indiana State Department of health (ISDH) to “adopt rules under IC4-22-2 to require
school age children to receive additional immunizations against the following:
Meningitis, Varicella, and Pertussis (whooping cough).
The additional
immunizations required under the rules shall include an immunization booster if
considered appropriate by the state department.”  Effective August 17, 2011;
without having proof of receiving these immunizations,  your child will be
excluded from attending school or participating in school related extra
curricular activities; please bring proof to the building nurse on or before this
date.

Immunization requirements for 2011-2012 school year:

a. ALL students entering Kindergarten are required to have the following:
5 doses of DPT, 4 doses of polio (one given on or after the 4th birthday),
3 doses of Hepatitis B, 2 doses of MMR, and 2 doses of varicella (unless a
history of chicken pox is documented)

b. ALL 6th -12th grade 5 doses of DPT; 4 doses of polio (one given on or after
the 4th
birthday), 2 MMR, 2 doses of varicella vaccine, 1 dose of Tdap given on
or after 10 years of age; 3 doses of Hepatitis B vaccine (3rd dose must be given
on or after 24 weeks
of age); and 1 dose of Meningococcal conjugate vaccine
