immunizations New Immunization Laws

New legislative changes regarding school immunizations went into effect in July 2017, and every student in our school district will be impacted by these changes. Each student will have to provide their respective schools with a new KY Immunization Certificate, which has been re-designed.  Even if the student has a Religious Exemption, he/she will be required to provide a new Religious Exemption form which now requires a notary signature and seal.
