Immunization Information

  • Indiana Code 20-34-4-2 states every child residing in Indiana who is enrolled in an accredited school shall be immunized as determined by the State Department of Health.

  • Indiana Code 20-34-4-5 states that each school shall require the parent of a student who is enrolled in school to furnish, not later than the first day of school attendance, proof of the student’s immunization status unless the school gives the parent a waiver. That waiver may not exceed twenty (20) school days.

If you are unsure if your child needs additional vaccinations, feel free to contact your child's school clinic, your healthcare provider or the Shelby County Health Department (317-392-6470).

Vaccinination Clinics offered by SCHD
The Shelby County Health Department will be offering onsite vaccination clinics for age appropriate vaccines throughout the school year. Additional communication will be provided at the time of the clinics. 

The COVID-19 vaccine will not be given to anyone without a COVID-19 vaccine consent form. This will be a separate form that will be sent home and will be communicated to parents if a COVID-19 vaccination clinic is scheduled.
