After the pandemic hit, nearly all doctor's appointments to keep people healthy were canceled, including shots for kids. According to Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) school reports, 43% of Jefferson County K-12 students have not gotten all required shots. That compares to 26.4% of statewide K-12 students.

To help families catch up and get children "back on track" with their shots, MDwise and the IDOH are hosting Back on Track, on Jan. 20 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Armory in Madison.

All routine childhood vaccinations including measles, mumps, rubella, polio and HPV will be available, as well as flu shots and, for people 12 and older, COVID-19 vaccines.

"It's important that as many Hoosier kids as possible get vaccinated against preventable diseases like measles, polio and HPV," said Jessica Cromer, president and CEO of MDwise. "We're hosting 'Back on Track' to help ensure Indiana communities and families are healthy."

The event is open to everyone and will include free food, free school supplies and door prizes of $50 gift cards.

Parents and caregivers should sign up online at patients.vaxcare.com/registration (enter enrollment code IN97832, then select Back on Track Madison). Registration is encouraged but not required.

Anyone who needs help with transportation to get to the event should call MDwise customer service at 800-356-1204.

Children younger than 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult with valid identification, such as a driver's license, identification card or passport. Insurance is not required for qualified children to get their shots, but if they are covered by health insurance, that information must be given.
