Indiana's Department of Health has released immunization requirements for anyone going to school next year, and there are some new ones on the list.
Starting this fall, all students K-12 will be required to get both doses of the chicken pox vaccine, unless they can prove they’ve had the chicken pox disease before. For students grades K-5, a healthcare provider must validate that the child has had the pox.
The department of health also recommends that kindergarten sutdents have two doses of the hepatitis A vaccine.
11th and 12th graders should have a booster dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine. That's to prevent a bacterial disease that can prove fatal.
Immunization records are available online.
See the full list of required immunizations on the State Department of Health website.
