New Immunization Regulations Take Effect for 2018-19
Recent amendments to the state law regarding immunization schedules (902 KAR 2:060) required for attending school take effect starting in the 2018-19 school year. There is a timing requirement to the vaccination schedule, so families should plan on an early start in order to be prepared for the upcoming school year.

For the 2018-19 School Year:
* All students in kindergarten through twelfth grade must show proof of having received two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine to attend school (doses are administered 6 months or more apart), and

* Students 16 or older must show proof of having received two doses of Meningococcal ACWY vaccine (MenACWY) to attend school. However, if the first dose of MenACWY was received at age sixteen or older, the second dose is not required for school entry.

Parents and caregivers are advised to see their child’s medical provider or local health department as soon as possible regarding immunizations. Updated and current immunization certificates are to be submitted to school before the start of the new school year.
