AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE STATE OF IOWA PUBLIC HEALTH 

On 04/15/2019 a case of measles has been reported in Iowa.  This is the first case in our state since 2011 and is a good reminder to make sure that your family’s vaccines are up to date.  The measles vaccine is highly effective (the patient with measles was not vaccinated) and all school-aged children should have two MMR doses by the time they start kindergarten.  

If a case of measles is identified in our school, public health officials will require all unvaccinated students and staff to remain at home until 21 days after their last possible exposure to measles.  Please make sure your family is protected.  Vaccines save lives.

For more information on measles, please visit: https://idph.iowa.gov/cade/disease-information/measles or contact your local health department.
