New regulations include one age-specific immunization requirement for 2018-2019 school year.

Specifically, students in kindergarten through their senior year of high school will be required to have two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine. Also, students age 16 and older must receive two doses of meningococcal ACWY vaccine to attend school. If the first dose was received at age 16 or older, the second does is not required.
The Hepatitis A vaccine will be available during the clinic on a first come, first served basis, and will be provided for free. Those attending should bring a copy of their children’s current immunization record.
Children with Hepatitis A, which is a liver disease, often don’t have symptoms. They can pass the disease along to others, however, including their unvaccinated parents or caregivers. Those individuals can get very sick. The Hepatitis A shot protects a child from the disease and can keep the student from missing school.

Half the exhibit will be on display in Campbellsville University’s Pence-Chowning Art Gallery, 205 University Drive, while the other half will reside at Taylor County Public Library, 1316 E. Broadway St., for the duration of the exhibit’s stay in Campbellsville through Feb. 23.
In conjunction with the exhibit, Kentucky blacksmith Karine Maynard of Lawrenceburg-based Maynard Studios will give a presentation 3 p.m. Feb. 12 at the gallery on her life as a tradition-bearer and artist entrepreneur. Master folk musician Sue Massek and her apprentice Melody Youngblood will perform at 6 p.m. Feb. 22 at the library.
Davie Reneau, director of the university’s Pence-Chowning Art Gallery, said that Campbellsville did not want to miss the opportunity to host “Makings of a Master.”
“Our gallery cannot accommodate the volume of the exhibit, but the library in Campbellsville was agreeable to help share in the exhibit. They are doing the music portion of it and we are doing the visual arts,” Reneau said. “I think this show, at both locations, will have a lot of community interest.”
