South clinics address chickenpox

TERRE HAUTE — The Vigo County Health Department and Vigo County School Corp. will conduct two clinics at Terre Haute South Vigo High School today and Saturday in response to last week’s declaration by Health Commissioner Enrico Garcia that Vigo County has a chickenpox outbreak.

The free shot clinics will be conducted in the school’s gymnasium, with the entrance doors facing the south side parking lot.

Today’s clinic, from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., is just for Vigo County School Corp. students and staff assessed as needing to be “optimally immunized” for chickenpox. It is not open to the general public.

Information has been sent home to families of children who need to be immunized.

Saturday’s clinic, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., is open to school district students and staff and any Vigo County child older than one year and younger than six that still needs to be optimally immunized against chickenpox. This includes children in pre-k and daycare.

Saturday’s clinic is also for those enrolled in parochial and private schools and those who are home-schooled.

The child’s current immunization record is required the day of the clinic. Those who receive shots must live in Vigo County.

The school district recommends that parents accompany elementary children to the shot clinic today. Middle and high school students will be able to ride a school bus to South, but they will need signed parental permission forms.

As of Tuesday, students and staff who lack immunizations, or records that they’ve been immunized or had the disease, will be excluded from school for 21 days from the last documented case at that school, officials have said. Vigo County schools are out Monday for the Veterans Day holiday.
