Owensboro & Daviess County Schools Release New Immunization Laws for ALL Students
Attention Parents of school-aged children! The State of Kentucky has passed new immunizations laws for ALL students. Here's what they say-->
All parents are encouraged to make sure that their children are up to date on all their immunizations.
I spoke with DCPS officials and asked what was different from past requirements and why were changes being made. They told us that there is a new Hepatitis A shots (2 given six months apart) now required for all students from Kindergarten. They are also requiring students 16 and older get the Menigitis booster which in past was just a suggestion.
Health professionals are seeing a rise in sickness and are trying to be proactive for all of our school systems. If you have questions or concerns please contact the DCPS at 270-852-7000 or OPS at 270-686-1000.
