School Immunizations

Effective June 21, 2017, the Immunizations Program with the Kentucky Department for Public Health published recent changes to 902 KAR 2:060 Immunization schedules for attending child day care centers, certified family child care homes, other licensed facilities which care for children, preschool programs, and public and private primary and secondary schools, which can be found at the following link:https://apps.legislature.ky.gov/law/kar/902/002/060.pdf. This amended Kentucky Administrative Regulation requires all children to have a current immunization certificate on file, contains the required immunizations schedule for attending, and has a process to obtain a religious exemption from the required immunizations!

The Adolescent and Adult Immunization Quiz makes it easy for you to determine which vaccinations you need. Access the quiz at: http://www2a.cdc.gov/nip/adultimmsched
