Immunization Information

Did you know that all children attending school in Iowa must have a current and valid immunization record? Immunizations must include doses of Tdap, Polio, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), Hepatitis B, and Varicella. In the State of Iowa, a current and valid immunization record must be on file before the first day of school.  ADM will enforce the measure that a student may be excluded from school until their file shows compliance with Iowa Immunization Law.
