Good news if you live in Indiana. Free vaccinations will be available for all children, including children with health insurance, through the end of the year. Even though free vaccinations were originally planned to be restricted to uninsured and underinsured children starting in July, the Indiana State Department of Health has announced that it is postponing the new policy to help local health officers with summertime, back-to-school immunization drives so children can meet school-entry requirements.
Starting January 1, though, free vaccinations will be available only to children without health insurance and those children on health insurance plans which don’t cover the vaccinations. Indiana receives $90 million a year from the federal government to provide vaccinations to children who are Medicaid-eligible or who meet certain requirements. Indiana also spends another $11 million to provide free vaccinations to underinsured children.
