All Duneland School Corporation students will be required to provide
documentation of meeting the immunization requirements.
Indiana has changed the vaccination requirements for grades 6-12 for the
2010-2011 school year.
Indiana state law now requires three additional vaccines: Tdap for
protection against Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis; MCV4 for protection
against bacterial meningitis and Varicella for protection against Chicken
Pox (second dose).
If your student is missing these vaccines, contact your health care provider
or the Porter County Health Department (219-465-3525). Vaccinations from the
PCHD are free of charge.
Students will be excluded from school if not properly immunized 20 days from
their enrollment date.
The Porter County Health Department is offering Mass Immunization Clinics
for students needing to update their immunizations on Friday, Sept. 10 and
Friday, Sept. 17 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the Valparaiso Clinic, 155 Indiana
Avenue Suite 104, Valparaiso.
