Immunization Reminder

A recent amendment to the Kentucky Administrative Regulation on the immunization schedules for attending school added new immunization requirements for the school year beginning July 1, 2018. Starting July 1, 2018 Kentucky will be requiring all students in kindergarten through grade twelve to provide proof of having received two doses of hepatitis A vaccine to attend school.


Administration of the hepatitis A vaccine has been encouraged for several years so some children in our community may already have this vaccine. However, because the hepatitis A vaccine is newly required for ALL students attending Kentucky public schools, parents/guardians are encouraged to confirm their child's status and/or schedule immunizations now to ensure compliance before the 2018-2019 school year.


Since the minimum spacing between the two doses is six months, families are asked to complete the following steps this month to ensure their child is compliant with this new regulation prior to the start of the new school year on August 8, 2018:

  • Consult with your child's healthcare provider to ensure that these vaccines have been given to your child, or make an appointment to begin the vaccination series.
  • Obtain an updated Kentucky Immunization Certificate from your provider.
  • Turn in a copy of current Immunization record to your child's school.


In addition, all students age 16 and older must show proof of having received two doses of meningococcal ACWY vaccine (also called MenACWY or Meningitis Booster) to attend school. This is required even if the student received the booster between the ages of 11 and 15. If your child has not previously received a dose of the vaccine and is age 16 or older, only one dose is required.

Prior to the start of the new school year on August 8, 2018:

  • Consult with your child's healthcare provider to ensure that these vaccines have been given to your child, or make an appointment to begin the vaccination series.
  • Obtain an updated Kentucky Immunization Certificate from your provider.
  • Turn in a copy of a current Immunization record to your child's school.


For more information about the new immunization requirements, please contact your child's health care provider or your school nurse.
