Meningitis Immunization Information
The Indiana State Department of Health requires that all students entering 12th grade receive a 2nd meningitis vaccination documented and on file in the school nurses office unless the 1st vaccination occurred on or after the student’s 16th birthday. Students and/or parents will need to provide the nurses office with written verification from a health provider or health department documenting the date of the meningitis vaccination prior to the first day of school. Seniors are also required to receive 2 Hepatitis A vaccines given at least 6 months apart. We hope in getting this messaging out well in advance that you’ll have time to make necessary arrangements in the event your student requires an updated vaccination.
