Tdap and Meningococcal Public Health Requirement
The Iowa Department of Public Health requires all students entering 7th grade have both the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis/whooping cough) booster and Meningococcal vaccination prior to starting 7th grade.
The Tdap requirement requires a booster dose of Tetanus, Diphtheria, and acellular Pertussis containing vaccine for students entering 7th grade, regardless of the interval since the last Tetanus/Diphtheria containing vaccine.  Pertussis (whooping cough) is a very contagious disease that causes violent coughing fits that make it hard to breathe. 
Meningococcal disease is a life threatening illness that is caused by bacteria that infects the brain, blood, and spinal cord.  It easily spreads in crowded settings.   The vaccine will be required prior to both the 7th and 12th grades.
All students entering 7th grade must have proof of having both the Meningococcal and the Tdap vaccines before school starts in August (2018), unless the student has a Certificate of Immunization Exemption. 
There will be NO GRACE PERIOD OR EXTENSION for the implementation of this requirement. Now is a great time for your child to receive these immunization requirements and beat the back-to-school rush by making an appointment for your incoming 7th grader.
