INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
The Indiana State Department of Health is reminding parents that making sure
immunizations are up to date is an essential part of getting ready to go
back to school.
It says school
immunization requirements have changed for the 2018-19 school year. Two
doses of the hepatitis A vaccine are now required for grades K-4, 6 and 12.
Two doses are recommended for all other grades.
A complete list of
Indiana school immunization requirements is available online.
Hoosiers can access
their immunization records through MyVaxIndiana, a user-friendly website
that allows parents and other individuals to connect with their immunization
records from any computer through the use of a personal identification
number. That number is available from the individualís health care provider.
