School Immunizations
The 2021–22 school recommended and required immunizations for students in Grades K–12 include Hep B, DTaP, Polio and others.

All school recommended and required vaccines that students are due for—according to CHIRP records—will be administered unless a parent/guardian notifies Marion County Public Health Department that they want to opt out of a specific vaccine. You can do this at the clinic.
