Iowa Immunization Requirements
Iowa Code, Chapter 139a.8(6) and Iowa Administrative Code, 641-7.7(139) outline the immunization requirement for students attending licensed child care centers and elementary or secondary schools. Students shall have received the required immunizations and submit the Iowa Department of Public Health Certificate of Immunization or have a valid Certificate of Immunization Exemption, or Provisional Certificate of Immunization.
An administrative rule change to require meningococcal (A, C, W, Y) vaccine for students enrolling in 7th and 12th grades was effective January 11, 2017. The change will be implemented at the beginning of the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.
