Links: Kentucky Immunization Laws and Regulations

Vaccination requirements and parental choice are making local and national headlines. In Kentucky, immunizations are required for children enrolled in child care and schools, however the requirements do provide exemptions for medical or religious reasons.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services website lists the most current certificates, schedules and requirements: http://chfs.ky.gov/dph/epi/School+and+Childcare.htm as well as a “cheat sheet” for quick reference.

The Kentucky Department of Education also provides immunization resources specifically directed to public schools. By law, current immunization certificates for all students should be on file at the school within the first two weeks of enrollment.
