New Vaccine Requirements for 2019-20

As per Kansas Statute 72-6262, all children upon entry to school must be appropriately

vaccinated as deemed necessary by the State Department of Health and Environment

(KDHE). Medical and religious exemptions are the only exceptions recognized by the

statute. Medical exemptions signed by a physician must be provided on an annual

basis. Failure to provide the written documentation required by law will prohibit school

entrance until such proof is presented. A link to the Kansas Immunization Requirements may

be found on the school nurse resources webpage.


Students who have not received age-appropriate vaccinations will be excluded as outlined in

KDHE requirements for Isolation and Quarantine of Infectious or Contagious Diseases. KDHE

isolation requirements will be posted on the school nurse resources webpage.









Please find attached information from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) on new vaccination requirements. Two new vaccines will be required for school-age children for the 2019-2020 school year – meningococcal and Hepatitis A.
