An Important Immunization Update for Families to Know.
Starting July 1, 2018, the state of Kentucky will be requiring all students to provide proof of having received two doses of hepatitis A vaccine to attend school. Since the minimum spacing between the two doses is six months, families are asked to complete the following steps as soon as possible 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 a current Immunization to your child's school.
