School Immunization Update

Any student that has not yet obtained a NEW and current immunization certificate, listing all required shots, must have one prior to the 2018-19 school year. The Department of Public Health promulgated a new immunization regulation (effective June 21, 2017) with a new vaccination schedule (effective July 1, 2018). The previous immunization regulation and certificate did not include Hepatitis A. Because the prior certificate did not include Hepatitis A, it can no longer be used for school attendance. The new certificate was released in the summer of 2017. A copy of the new certificate is available online on the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) website. A physician’s office may print out an immunization certificate electronically for school attendance as long as the certificate meets all requirements outlined in 902 KAR 2:060.
