IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL NURSE FOR INCOMING 7th and 12TH GRADE STUDENTS:
The Iowa Department of Public Health has made changes to the Iowa Immunization law for the start of the 2017/18 school year. This change requires that all students entering 7th and 12th grade have the Meningococcal vaccine before school starts this fall.
All students entering 12th grade must have proof of having the Meningococcal vaccine before school starts in August, unless the student has a Certificate of Immunization Exemption.
There will be NO grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.
To obtain the State required Meningococcal vaccine you may take your child to:
- Your family doctor or health care provider, call and make an appointment today.
- Walk in clinics.
- The Iowa Department of Health, which is usually free of charge, can be reached at 515-286-3798 for appointments.
After receiving the Meningococcal vaccine, the completed immunization record can be faxed to 563-652-5324 or e-mailed to email@example.com or dropped off at the high school office. Again, this must be completed BEFORE your child can start school in the Fall 2017. There will be NO grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.
