Meningococcal Immunization now required for students entering 7th grade

Public Health

Charles City, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Public Health has made changes to the Iowa Immunization law for the start of the 2017- 2018 school year. This change requires  that all students entering 7th grade have a meningococcal immunization before school starts in the fall. A second dose will be required of students entering 12th grade, if they haven’t received that second dose.

Floyd County Public Health Director Gail Arjes talks about the new immunization requirement.
