New Kentucky School Immunization Requirements for the 2018-2019 School Year
New Immunization Requirements: effective 7/1/2018, all students in kindergarten through 12th grade must show proof of having received two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine to attend school. Parents will need to contact their physician or local health dept to see if their student will need this vaccine. HEP A is a 2 dose series (6 months apart) so in theory everyone must start the vaccine by January 1, 2018 in order to complete by July 1, 2018. However, for school entry next year it will be REQUIRED that each student have at least 1 dose by the start of school and a follow-up appointment for 2nd dose. If you have questions, please contact your child’s school nurse.
