After the pandemic hit, nearly all doctors’ appointments to keep people healthy were canceled, including shots for students and families. To help Indianapolis families catch up and get “back on track” with their shots, MDwise, Indiana Department of Health and Indianapolis Public Schools are hosting Back on Track, at Northwest Middle School on March 24.
All routine childhood vaccinations including measles, mumps, rubella, polio and HPV will be available, as well as flu shots and, for those 5 and older, COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
“It’s important that as many Hoosier kids as possible get vaccinated against preventable diseases like measles, polio and HPV,” said Jessica Cromer, president and CEO of MDwise. “We’re hosting ‘Back on Track’ to help ensure Indiana communities and families are healthy.”
The event is open to everyone and will include free school supplies and raffles every 30 minutes for $50 gift cards from MDwise.
Parents and caregivers should sign up online at patients.vaxcare.com/registration (enter enrollment code IN65942, then select Northwest Middle School/Newcomer Program 3/24). Registration is encouraged but not required.
