SENIOR YEAR REQUIREMENT

New this year, the State of Indiana has added a requirement for all 12th grade students to receive a booster meningococcal vaccine, which protects against bacterial meningitis.  Bacterial meningitis is rare but exceptionally severe-infected people can die within 24 hours, and many suffer limb amputations due complications of to the disease.  Research has shown that protection that students receive at 6th grade entry wears off after a few years, which led to the recommendation for a booster dose intended to offer protection for the next few years in which young adults are most at-risk of acquiring meningitis.

KINDERGARTEN REQUIREMENT

The State now requires all K students to have received two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine.  This is not required yet at other grade levels.  Hepatitis A is a liver infection that is usually linked to improperly handled food.

Contact your health care provider NOW if your student does not yet have the required vaccines for school entrance.  Those who have no health insurance, or who have Medicaid or Hoosier HealthWise insurance, may visit the Montgomery County Free Clinic, 116 Mill Street, 362-3244.  Shots are given at no charge to those who qualify every Tuesday morning.

"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and life-long achievement and health of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety including a healthy environment; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning."
