DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) - Half of Iowans now oppose the state law banning local mask mandates, including at schools.

That’s according to a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa poll. And that’s an increase since spring.

Data shows 50 percent of surveyed Iowans oppose the law, compared to 47 percent in favor.

Fifty-five percent of Iowans say they would support mandating COVID-19 vaccines for children in schools once a vaccine gets full federal approval.

Forty-one percent say they are against a vaccine mandate for students.

Iowa currently requires several vaccinations for students including measles, polio, and more unless they’re under religious or medical exemptions.
