Health officials are offering chickenpox vaccinations for students at a northeastern Indiana school amid the disease outbreak
Travellers heading off to Indiana, especially those with kids, have been urged to take extra care after health officials reported chickenpox outbreaks in several schools around the US state.
Vaccination booths have been set up by the Steuben County Health Department for students who are not already immunised against the illness.
The department said pupils from Fremont Elementary School who are not properly inoculated will not be allowed to attend school until the outbreak is over.
According to Ben Roederer, Superintendent of Fremont schools, the first chickenpox case was reported in late November, followed by two more confirmed cases last week.
The news may see many holidaymakers take out
medical travel insurance before visiting the affected area.
Many other schools, such as Middlebury Community Schools in Elkhart County have also identified more than a dozen of chickenpox cases.
