The Black Hawk County Health Department’s Immunization Program assures there are vaccinations available for children and adolescents in the program. The Health Department is responsible for updating vaccine information as it becomes available, and contracts with the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) to provide vaccines through their Vaccine For Children Program. Black Hawk County works to address barriers, educate providers on vaccinations, and provides vaccine recommendations for school-age children. The Health Department also conducts annual vaccination audits with schools and childcare centers to review compliance with vaccine requirements.
