Is your school mandating vaccinations for childcare and school enrollment? Please see what Iowa law says about that and report violations here.

Iowa law allows for religious and medical exemptions to vaccinations for childcare and school enrollment. (139A.8 subsection 4a)


Currently ​the following vaccines are on the required list for school entry unless a student has an exemption: rubeola (measles), rubella, varicella (chicken pox) poliomyelitis, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, meningococcal disease, and haemophilus influenza B and pneumococcal disease for those in child care settings. 


Again, these are only required if the student is NOT exempt. Schools communicating “no shot no school” or telling parents that students will not be allowed in school unless they have completed all vaccinations while leaving out exemption information are disseminating misinformation not at all representative of Iowa law. 

When you complete the reporting form it automatically gets forwarded to Director Ann Lebo and Director Garcia at the Iowa Departments of Education and Health. 


If you don’t hear back from one of the Departments within 7 business days please inform us of the delay through 

the contact form as well.
