Make sure your child is up-to-date with their immunizations and that a current record is on file at school. If you have a child entering 7th grade make sure they have received their Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis). Iowa law requires a dose of Tdap before entering 7th grade.
See http://www.siouxcountychp.org/programs-services/immunizations/ for more information on immunizations.
Should businesses be concerned about e-cigarette use in their facilities?
Since the Iowa SmokeFree Air Act was passed in 2008, there has been much effort to maintain clean air for every Iowan. The use of e-cigarettes in public places and workplaces may complicate the efforts to enforce smoke free laws. Since secondhand vapor has not been evaluated, the American Lung Association supports including e-cigarettes under smoke free laws.
What can I do to keep my business smoke free?
Do not allow e-cigarette use. It is legal to prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in your facilities/businesses. This would simplify enforcement efforts. Businesses can modify an existing smoke free or tobacco free policy to include e-cigarettes and the like.
