Iowa Immunization Law Requirements

Jody Pierce BSN RN

Clayton Ridge MS/HS Nurse


Iowa Immunization Law requires:

  • All students entering 7th grade to have the Meningococcal vaccine AND a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, or whooping cough) booster before school starts in the fall.
  • All students entering 12th grade to have a second dose of the Meningococcal vaccine before school starts this fall. This dose must be given after the age of 16. (One dose meets the requirement if it was received when the child was 16 years of age or older.)

Students WILL NOT be allowed to start school in the Fall of 2021 without proof of these vaccines or a valid exemption on file.


Iowa Law also requires:

  • All students entering 9th grade have a dental screening by a dentist or dental hygienist within one year before the start of school, but no later than 4 months after the school year has started.

Please feel free to call or email with any questions.
