About the Program:
The Bremer County Health Department's Immunization Program provides immunizations to all age groups for protection against vaccine preventable diseases.  The BCHD also contracts with the Iowa Department of Public Health to provide federally-funded vaccines through their Vaccine For Children Program.
The Bremer County Health Department is enrolled in Iowa Immunization Registry System (IRIS), which is a secure statewide database of immunization histories.  Vaccines available through the BCHD are those recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

Children birth through 18 years of age qualify for the Vaccines for Children Program if they fall into one of the following eligibility criteria:
