Schools to crack down on proof of chicken pox vaccinations, immunity

Pupils in kindergarten through 12th grade must show proof of either receiving two valid doses of the varicella vaccine, or “a documented history of having chicken pox disease,” the ISDH said in announcing those and other new immunization requirements.
