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.
For more information on the new meningitis vaccine requirement and for other school vaccine information, contact the Floyd County Public Health office at 257-6111.
