School Required Immunization Recall

In June 2014, the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) will send state-wide notices to parents of children entering kindergarten and 7th grade for the 2014 - 2015 school year, informing them of which vaccines their child needs in order to attend school in North Dakota. The immunization program will utilize the North Dakota Immunization Information System (NDIIS) to send information to parents of kindergartners who still need diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis (DTaP), polio (IPV), hepatitis B, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and varicella (chickenpox) vaccine and to parents of 7th graders who still need polio (IPV), hepatitis B, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), varicella (chickenpox), tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (TDAP), and meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine. Parents will receive a letter detailing which vaccines their child still needs to be considered up-to-date for school entry.

Adolescent Immunization Recall

In April 2013, the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) started conducting statewide recall of adolescents ages 12-17 years who are behind on their immunizations based on the North Dakota Immunization Information System (NDIIS). The immunization program is utilizing information from the NDIIS to recall 12-15 year old adolescents who are 30 or more days overdue for their 1st or 2nd dose of varicella (chickenpox), their 2nd or 3rd dose of human papillomavirus (HPV), their 1st dose of meningococcal conjugate (MCV4) and their 1st dose of tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine. Recall of 16-17 year old adolescents is for those who are 30 or more days overdue for their 2nd dose of varicella (chickenpox), their 2nd or 3rd dose of human papillomavirus (HPV), their 2nd dose of meningococcal conjugate (MCV4) and their 1st dose of tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine. The NDDoH will not be recalling adolescents who have never started the HPV vaccination series. Adolescent recall will be done using mailed postcards.

Postcards will be mailed to parents of teens on a quarterly basis between June 2013 and August 2014.
