doctor shot 2DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (12/5/17) — The Daviess County and Owensboro Public School districts are encouraging all parents and guardians to be aware of new immunization laws that will require Hepatitis A shots for ALL students, regardless of age/grade, and a Meningitis booster for ages 16 and up before entry into school in August 2018.
 
These laws, passed in June 2017, will be enforced at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year for all public schools in Kentucky.
 
Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to begin now in scheduling immunizations for their children to avoid potential shortages that may result from the large number of children who will require these shots.
 
Information is posted on DCPS and OPS district websites, including a summary of new shots required beginning in 2018; a summary of all shots required and the ages/grades at which they are required; and a list of suggested immunization providers that are available to families based on their insurance coverage status.
 
Visit www.dcps.org or www.owensboro.kyschools.us to learn more.
