Vaccine requirements updated by KDHE

There have been minimal changes for vaccination requirements, published by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, for the 2012-13 school year. Each required vaccination increased by one grade level. Vaccination requirements such as Hepatitis B have been phased in over the past few years. The 2012-13 school year will be the first year that all students will be required to have a complete three-does Hepatitis B vaccination series.

KDHE has updated the School and Child Care Immunization Information for the 2012-13 school year at The information provided on the KDHE website is based on the Advisory committee on Immunization Practices recommendations and the consensus of the Governor’s Child Health Advisory Committee Immunization work group.
