Nearly 400 Afghan evacuees arrived at Camp Atterbury over the weekend. 150 were expected to arrive Thursday, and another 100-plus are expected in the next four days.
They’ll spend the next few weeks getting processed at the base before outside organizations can begin work settling them across the U.S.
Part of that process has been making sure evacuees are up-to-date on their vaccines, since many are from rural areas of Afghanistan.
Camp officials recently completed a campaign to vaccinate over 6,100 evacuees against measles, mumps, rubella, and chickenpox.
