Parental or guardian consent is required for a minor to be administered the vaccine. At the time of signing consent for the first vaccine dose, parents and guardians will have the chance to name alternate caregivers who may chaperone the child or teen for the second dose. These caregivers must be 18 or older.

Those with unanswered questions or concerns about the vaccine can call the Health Department COVID-19 hotline at 317-221-5500 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
