Attention: New immunization requirement for incoming 7th grade and 12th grade

The Iowa Dept. of Public Health has recently made it a requirement for all students entering 7th and 12th grade to receive a Meningococcal vaccine. This rule will be implemented at the beginning of the upcoming 2017-18 school year. This is in addition to the requirement that all 7th graders have a TDAP (tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) booster.

The change requires a one-time dose of meningococcal (A, C, W, Y) vaccine received on or after 10 years of age for applicants in grades 7 and above, if born after September 15, 2004; and 2 doses of meningococcal (A, C, W, Y) vaccines for applicants in grade 12, if born after September 15, 1999; or 1 dose if received when applicants are 16 years of age or older.

Meningococcal disease is very serious. Approximately 10 to 15% of people with meningococcal disease die even with appropriate treatment. Of those who recover, up to 20% suffer from serious after-effects, such as permanent hearing loss, limb loss, or brain damage. Meningococcal vaccines are very safe and effective at preventing meningococcal disease. The meningococcal vaccine is 85 – 100% effective at preventing infection. The meningococcal secondary school vaccine requirement will help Iowa achieve and maintain high adolescent vaccine coverage levels, protecting the health of adolescents, friends, families, and communities.

There will be no provisional period to this requirement. Please make sure that your child has their immunization updates as they update their athletic physical or at there well child exams. I want to thank you in advance for seeing to this matter. If you have any questions feel free to contact your school nurse.
