Muhlenberg County Health Department Immunization Program

Kentucky law requires immunization of children entering day care, child care facilities and public or private schools. These requirements also allow for exemptions for both medical reasons and religious beliefs. Immunization laws and regulations protect everyone by generating high immunization participation that greatly reduces the risk of vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks.
