The Indiana Department of Health will be requiring ALL students in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade to have two appropriately administered doses of the Varicella vaccine, or physician evidence of immunity, for the 2013-14 school year. The first dose must be administered on or after the 1st birthday and the Varicella doses must be at least 28 days apart. These changes affect all students in Indiana. Beat the rush and turn in a copy your child’s updated immunizations to the school nurse before the end of the year. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our school nurse, Mrs. Green.
The only grades that will be lacking are grades third through fifth.Hopefully, parents will take advantage of this early notice. You may also receive a call from our automated calling system if you have a student in third, fourth or fifth grade regarding these changes.A notice will be coming home to these students.
