Per Iowa law, at the start of the 2017-18 school year there will be two immunizations required for 7th grade entry. These immunizations are Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis/whooping cough) and meningococcal (to prevent meningitis, a bacteria that infects the brain, blood and spinal cord).
This weekend, much of the world’s attention was focused on an effort by the federal government to impose restrictions on the ability of immigrants and refugees to come to the United States.
