New requirements for vaccines in 2014Hepatitis A vaccine will be required for all students in 2014. Hepatitis A is a viral infection that can result in liver disease. The vaccine is given in two doses, six months apart. If your child currently is in grades 6th – 11th your child will be required to have Hep A vaccine by the 2014-2015 school year, so it's important to get an early start to avoid the rush. Review your child’s immunization record now. If you have already had your child immunized for Hep A, make sure your school office has a record of the shots on file. If your child is not vaccinated for Hep A, see your doctor or local public health department. Pharmacists can vaccinate ages 11 years & older, or younger with a prescription. State law requires all children in public and private schools, preschools, Head Start and certified child care facilities have up-to-date immunizations, or have a religious or medical exemption. Currently, children in childcare, preschool, and grades K-5 are already required to have Hep A vaccine.
