New Kentucky Immunization Requirements

UPDATE:​  Due to the inclement weather conditions, the immunization clinic on January 17th from 4 pm to 7pm has been cancelled.  We will notify the
public if this clinic is re-scheduled.  As of now, the Saturday,
January 27th clinic is still on.   
Beginning August 2018, students will be required to have two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine to attend school.  These doses must be given six months apart, meaning that many children will need the first dose very soon to be able to get the second dose before school begins in August.  Students aged 16 and older must have two doses of Meningococcal ACWY vaccine to attend school in August. 
MCHD has  coordinated with the school system to plan an immunization clinic to meet the new Hepatitis A and Meningitis requirements for the school year beginning August 2018.  The extra clinic dates are scheduled for January 17 from 8 am through 7 pm and on January 27th from 8 am through 4 pm.  Clients must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, bring proof of income or medical card and records of past immunizations if not received at the Health Department.
