Immunization Requirement Change

West Noble HIGH SCHOOL students/parents:

Due to changes to Indiana State Law, beginning in August 2020 (next school year), ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS (GRADES 9-12) are REQUIRED to have two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine. Since the two doses of the immunization must be given at least 6 months apart, if your student has not received this vaccine yet, NOW would be a great time to make an appointment for the first dose.

*** Prior to entering 12th grade, students must also have a second dose of the MCV (meningococcal) vaccine.  Students may receive this any time after they turn 16 years of age.  Therefore, if he/she is old enough when they get their Hep A immunization, you may go ahead and have them get the MCV at the same time.

If you need to check if your student has received one or both of the above immunizations, you may call Nurse Robin at the HS (ext. 3040), or call the office where your student receives his/her vaccines.
