Did you know that students entering Kindergarten, 6th grade and 12th grade are required by state law to receive booster shots? Perry Township Schools tracks students’ shot records and on Monday, August 15th, 2016, we will exclude students who are not current with vaccinations from attending school. Please check your child’s immunization record and have your child vaccinated, if necessary.

Grades and Required Booster Shots:

K: Needs Hepatitis A booster (2nd dose)

6: Needs MCV (meningitis) and Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis)

12: Needs MCV booster (2nd dose)

If your child still requires immunizations, make an appointment at your doctor’s office or with the Marion County Public Health Department. The health department clinics provide free vaccinations for children who have Medicaid Part A, and a flat fee of $20 for all others (cash or check only). There are walk-in hours and appointment-only hours at two clinics  located in Perry Township. Their phone numbers and addresses are:

  • (317) 783-2474 (505 National Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46227)
  • (317) 883-3165 (2532 East Stop 11 Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46227)

If you have questions about your child’s shot records, you can call Esther Moeller, Nursing Supervisor, at 317-789-3789. Thank you and have a great day!
