I have VERY important news from the Indiana Department of Health regarding the next school year for students who will be seniors.
In addition to the second meningitis vaccination required prior to the first day of school, seniors also must have 2 doses of Hepatitis A completed prior to the first day of school. This is a 2-dose series that must be given 6 months apart so it is imperative to get started now if your student has not already had these. Please send this information to me anytime but also bring to it Registration this summer. If your senior student will not have completed the Hepatitis A series -- please bring a copy of their appointment card to finish the series. This will allow them to start school in August.
Meningococcal B is also recommended but not required at this time.
Please contact me with any questions and concerns at (260) 483-1102, ext. 235 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
