Indiana law requires that all students attending public schools are up-to-date with state immunization requirements for that year. Students may enroll, but not attend school without documentation of required immunizations or a verified medical or religious exemption. All exemptions must be renewed each year. Parents are responsible for providing verified records of immunizations. Without immunization records, or a verified medical or religious exemption, students may be excluded from attendance at school. Additionally, pursuant to 410 IAC 1-2.5, in the event of an Indiana Department of Health declared outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease, students will be excluded from school if they have not been vaccinated against that disease.
