1/2/2019 Update

With flu and sick season upon us, we have decided to make some changes to improve our services to help keep everyone healthy and we wanted to make you aware of them so you can share with your team.

  • We will now be doing catch up vaccines on Wednesdays instead of Fridays, this does not include the vaccine clinics.
  • Vaccine appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance to ensure we have the student’s up to date vaccine record and the vaccines needed.
  • Lab appointments must be made 24 hours in advance.  
  • Due to travel time from school to school, same day appointments must be made by 2:00pm. If made after 2:00 pm, patient may have to be seen the following day.

 

As always, we thank you for entrusting us with your healthcare. We hope you and your family have a happy and healthy New Year! If you have any questions or concerns please call Kryston Bennett at 606.408.9507.

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. 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. You may access the regulation online.

902 KAR 2:060 requires students to complete the Hepatitis A immunizations prior to the start of 2018-19 school year. The Kentucky Immunization Program highly encouraged children to receive their first Hepatitis A vaccine prior to the end of January 2018 to allow for the second dose to be given six months later, by the end of July.However, as long as there is documentation of one Hepatitis A vaccine on the NEW Immunization Certificate with the Provisional Status box checked and an expiration date of six months and two weeks after the first dose of Hepatitis A vaccine, the child may attend school at the start of the 2018-19 school year. The student should receive the second Hepatitis A dose after six months but before the expiration of the Provisional Immunization Certificate and provide the school with an updated immunization certificate.

Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, a meningococcal vaccine booster is required for any student 16 years of age or over.

If a parent declines to immunize a child based on religious objections, then the parent must complete a sworn and notarized statement.
