Iowa Immunization Requirements
The goal of the Iowa Department of Public Health, Immunization Program is to reduce and ultimately eliminate the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases by working in conjunction with public and private health care providers throughout the state. Accomplishing this goal will require achieving and maintaining high vaccination coverage levels, improving vaccination strategies among under vaccinated populations, prompt reporting and thorough investigation of suspected cases and rapid institution of disease control measures.
The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), Bureau of Immunization, has completed the administrative rules process to require meningococcal (A, C, W, Y) vaccine for students enrolling in 7th and 12th grades. The administrative rule change was effective January 11, 2017, and will be implemented at the beginning of the upcoming 2017-2018 school year. The immunization requirements chart from the Iowa Administrative Code, Chapter 7, Immunization and Immunization Education is available here.
The mission of the Immunization Program is to decrease vaccine-preventable diseases through education, advocacy, and partnership. Our Program is committed to keeping you informed of changes and looks forward to working with you during the implementation of the new requirement for the upcoming school year. If you have questions regarding this change, contact the Immunization Program at 1-800-831-6293.
