New rule says Ky. students need two-dose Hepatitis A vaccine before school starts; the first dose is needed now for compliance

 

new state regulation says Kentucky students must prove that they have had the two-dose hepatitis A vaccine by the first day of school, so it's time to get the first dose, because the shots are given six months apart. Effective for the school year beginning on or after July 1, 2018:

The regulation also applies to children entering day-care centers, certified family child-care homes and pre-school programs, as well as public and private primary and secondary schools. It also requires home-schooled students who participate in any public or private school activities to be vaccinated.
