Medical Immunization Records
The Illinois Department of Public Health requires that all students living in on-campus housing and born on or after January 1, 1957, entering a post-secondary institution are required to present documented proof of immunity (pdf) against the following diseases:
- Measles (Rubeola) - two (2) doses at least 28 days apart
- Rubella (German Measles) - two (2) doses at least 28 days apart
- Mumps - two (2) doses at least 28 days apart
- TD (Tetanus and Diphtheria) - three (3) doses required - one (1) within past 10 years
- Meningitis - Required for students under age of 22 - Must be given on or after 16th birthday
Note: Students are also responsible for showing documentation for any other immunizations as specified by their colleges whether the student is living in on-Campus Housing or not. These documents must be submitted to the students college, and do not need to be submitted to the Office of Medical Immunization.
Students in on-campus housing who are not properly immunized and have not submitted a written statement of medical or religious exemption are required to undergo immunization within the first term of enrollment. Failure to provide the required proof of immunity shall prevent a student from enrolling in a subsequent term. To prevent a hold from being placed on a student's account, students must submit the required proof of immunity (pdf).
