IPS turns away 1,600 students

October 19, 2010

Hundreds of parents and students stood in long lines Tuesday morning at the Marion County Health Department, so the students could get immunized for school. About 1,600 students at Indianapolis Public Schools were not allowed in the classroom Monday because they weren't up to date on their shots. The Marion County Health Department is trying to reduce that number with a mass vaccine clinic this week. IPS has about 32,000 students.
