Immunizations Clipart


A recent amendment to Kentucky State Law regarding required student immunizations will go into effect for the 2018-2019 school year. The following changes will impact every student attending Lyon County Schools.

1. ALL students in grades K-12 must have two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine. Hepatitis A vaccine is a series of two shots, and these injections must be given six months apart. In order for the two shot series to be completed by August 2018, the first shot should be given in January or February. Many health care providers and the local health department have been administering the Hepatitis A vaccines for the past several years, so your student may be compliant with the new regulation. Check with your student’s immunization provider. 

2. In order to attend school, students age 16 years or older must also show proof of having received two doses of Meningococcal ACWY vaccine (MenACWY). The first dose has been required for 6thgrade entry, and now, a booster is required at age 16.

3. All students must obtain a new immunization record that shows he/she has received all age-appropriate vaccines for school attendance. These updated records can be obtained from your child’s healthcare provider or health department.


Please contact your child’s school nurse with any questions.
