Pursuant to 902 KAR 2:055, all kindergartens and sixth grades in either public or private elementary and secondary schools shall submit to their local health departments immunization results on the Commonwealth of Kentucky School Annual Immunization Survey.
The Annual School Immunization Survey helps the Kentucky Immunization Program assess vaccination coverage data at the county level. To determine vaccination rates for the commonwealth, we survey two different age groups:
- Kindergarten and
- Sixth Grade.
Data gathered is reported by April 30 annually to the CDC. Please see the latest version of the MMWR (Aug. 28, 2015, Vol 64/No. 33) for the 2014-2015 report to CDC on Kentucky’s vaccination coverage among children in kindergarten.
Survey materials are distributed in the fall to all local health departments. A list of schools compiled from the Department of Education website is provided to individual county contacts as part of the survey materials. County contacts are responsible for distributing the materials to schools and can answer questions as they arise.
The survey is to be completed using the worksheet as an aid. All data entered on a survey is taken from children’s immunization certificates on file. All surveys are to be completed by Dec 31.
