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).

Making an Appointment:
Call the BCHD at (319) 352-0082 to schedule an appointment to receive a non- COVID19  or non-flu vaccine.  Please have the following information available during the call and at your appointment:

  • Immunization record
  • Insurance card
  • Date of birth or social security number
Children birth through 18 years of age qualify for the Vaccines for Children Program if they fall into one of the following eligibility criteria:
  • Medicaid-eligible
  • American Indian/Alaskan Native
  • Uninsured
  • Underinsured (defined as a child with health insurance, but the plan does not include routine immunizations)
The BCHD provides immunizations during the Waverly WIC Clinic the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 8:45-4:00 PM located at Redeemer Lutheran Church in the library.

Iowa Immunization Requirements:
Iowa Code, Chapter 139a.8(6) and Iowa Administrative Code, 641-7.7(139) outline the immunization requirement for students attending licensed child care centers and elementary or secondary schools.  Students shall have received the required immunizations and submit the Iowa Department of Public Health Certificate of Immunization or have a valid Certificate of Immunization Exemption-Medical or -Religious, or Provisional Certificate of Immunization.
