Immunization Requirements

Vaccines

1. These are the immunizations required by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH)

All students must have these immunizations at the grade level indicated on this list:

Parents or guardians must provide proof of immunizations to the school nurse on or before the first day of the 2020-21 school year – August 12. 

Contact your health care provider or the St. Joseph County Health Department (SJCHD) now to schedule an appointment for these required vaccines. Immunization visits at the SJCHD are currently by appointment only. Call 574-245-6656 to schedule an appointment.

If you need a copy of your child’s immunizations, contact your school nurse.

2. These are new requirements for 2020-21

These are in the ISDH list above, but because these are new, students and their families should check their records to verify their immunizations are current. 

All grade levels, K-12

  • 2 Hepatitis A vaccines – a series of two vaccines separated by 6 months.

  • 2 Varicella vaccines (Chicken Pox) - physician documentation of disease, including month and year, is proof of immunity for children entering pre-school through grade 12. Parent report of disease history is not acceptable.
