Immunizations for Children
Kentucky mandates every student have a current Commonwealth of Kentucky Immunization Certificate to attend school. The School Immunization Program, including Kentucky's Immunization Registry, is administered by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) Immunization Program. Immunization laws and regulations protect everyone. Kentucky has regulations requiring immunizations for children in child care and school. The Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) administers the Immunization Program in Kentucky schools. These same requirements also provide exemptions from these immunizations for both medical reasons and religious beliefs. A current immunization certificate should be on file at the school within two weeks of the child’s enrollment (702 KAR 1:160, formerly 704 KAR 4:020).
For more information or questions regarding immunizations, forms or the KY Immunization Registry, please visit the Kentucky Immunization Registry Web site (published 7/20/2020. 10:05AM)
