The health services department of nursing has important Immunization information for parents/guardians and students for this coming school year 2020/2021.
According to the CDC, Immunizations are more important than ever and at this time, it is expected that all students are current on their immunizations unless they have an exemption on file.
If current students and new students, registering online or in-person, are not up-to-date on their immunizations, a 20-day waiver will be given and after that, your child will be excluded from school until they get the required immunizations.
Immunization education materials are provided for you on the Indiana State Dept. of Health website. All educational and immunization requirement materials can be found on the ISDH website under “Letters:” Please refer to the following link for information on required immunizations for the upcoming 2020/2021 school year.
Immunizations are due on the first day of school (August 18th). Please check with your health care provider or call the Lake County Health Department 755-3658 to schedule an appointment for your immunization needs.
The MCSC nursing staff want to thank you for all that you do to keep your child(ren) healthy.
