5th Grade Health Information for entering 6th Grade

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Your child needs vaccines before entering 6th grade, unless they have already received them after turning 10 years old.

Our school has partnered with Margaret Mary Health in order to save you time and hassle by having them done during school hours on April 16, 2019 at BIS.

The Indiana State Law requires all 6th graders to have the following:

  •   Tdap
  •   Meningitis (MCV4)
  •   Other immunizations will also be available if your child is behind or you chose optional vaccines.Most insurance plans, including Medicaid, now cover vaccines. Please check with your insurance carrier if you are unsure of your coverage. Free vaccine is available to those who meet criteria for the Vaccine for Children Program.In order for your child to get vaccines during this school based clinic, you must legibly complete in black or blue pen, sign & date both forms and return them to school by:
