New immunizations are required for all students for the 2018-2019 school year.
School officials around the state are encouraging parents to begin preparing for new immunization requirements for school children. The law takes effect with the 2018-19 school year and requires all students to receive a Hepatitis A vaccine and students 16 and older to get a meningitis booster.
ALL students in K-12th grade must have two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine to attend school. Hepatitis A vaccine is a series of two shots, and the injections must be given six months apart. In order to meet requirements, the first shot needs to be given in January or the latest February so the second dose can be given before school’s August start date.
Students aged 16 years or older also must show proof of having received two doses of Meningococcal ACWY vaccine (MenACWY) to attend school. Many students may have received the Meningococcal ACWY vaccine between ages 11-12. All students must obtain a new immunization record showing he/she received the age-appropriate vaccines for school entry. The meningococcal booster is a new requirement, so this affects ALL STUDENTS age 16 and older.
Check your child’s immunization certificate. If you are unsure or do not have your child’s certificate, contact your health care provider, or health department.
