State law requires that when a student is in a school corporation for the first time, or any subsequent time and at any level, the parents must show either that the student has been immunized or that a current religious or medical objection is on file. Parents must provide the school corporation with complete immunization records prior to the beginning of the school year. (Please note that beginning with the 2019-20 school year, parents of students entering kindergarten
at MCAS must also provide documentation that their child has had a lead level screening test.) Click here

The LaPorte County Health Department offers immunizations for Medicaid, uninsured, or under-insured students, by appointment, on Mondays and Tuesdays only. The offices are located at 300 Washington Street in Michigan City. Call 219-326-6808 ext 2200 for details!
(Please note that the Health Dept. does not provide immunizations to students who have health insurance coverage. "Under" insured patients are still eligible for vaccines not covered by their insurance. Please contact your insurance company to determine what vaccines are covered prior to making an appointment.)
