Additional Information

State Law Requires Lead Testing and Dental Screening

New state laws now require proof of blood lead testing of children entering kindergarten and dental screening of children entering  kindergarten and 9th grades. Requirements for dental screening also apply to transfer students enrolling into an elementary or high school from a school outside of Iowa.  Please check with your health care provider to see if your child has met these requirements. If you need assistance, please contact your school nurse or our Health Services Department at 515-242-7618.

Additionally, for $20, children over age three can visit the Polk County Health Department for their physical, immunization assessment, lead and hemoglobin blood test, dental screening and dental varnish if applicable. Children with no insurance, inadequate insurance or Title 19 can also receive free immunizations. Call 515-286-3798 to make an appointment.
