Immunizations

Updated: March 2017

Immunizations are the cornerstone of Public Health in the United States.  We are very fortunate to live where children do not die from vaccine preventable diseases.  Please continue to vaccinate your children according to the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics.  Please note that even the largest advocacy group for Autism in the United States, "Autism Speaks" denounces the myth that vaccines cause autism.  Protect your children and vaccinate!

The State of Iowa requires that all children be immunized before they may attend school.

This includes preschoolers, kindergartners and a booster of Tdap for  7th graders.

Immunizations required are:

  • Diphtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis (DtaP)

  • Polio (OPV/IPV)

  • Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR)

  • Hepatitis B

  • Varicella (Chickenpox):

  • Tdap-The Tdap shot must be received before your child begins 7th grade.

  • New requirement for 2017-18 school year: Both of these immunizations need to be turned into the school before the start of the 2017-2018 school year or your child may not attend school.

    • 12 grade students need to have received Meningococcal (A,C,W,Y) on or after 16 years of age.

    • 7th grade students need to have received Meningococcal (A,C,W,Y) on or after 10 years of age.

Please bring a completed certificate of immunization from the doctor’s office if your child is in the above-mentioned grades. Your student’s immunization records will be checked the beginning of school and you will be notified of the steps you need to take for your child to remain in school if they are not up-to-date on their immunizations.
