Your student was given an important letter regarding the new Kentucky immunization requirements for school. Beginning in the school year 2018-2019, all students will need to show proof of having received two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine. This vaccine requires the delivery of the doses to be given six months apart. In addition, students age sixteen years or older must show proof of having received two doses of the meningococcal vaccine. It is important to contact your physician or local health department as soon as possible to verify your student has had the immunizations. If they have not had the immunizations, you should schedule an appointment as soon as possible. If you have additional questions, please contact your medical provider or your school nurse.
