Beginning this fall with the 2014-2015 school year, Illinois law requires ALL students entering school at ALL grade levels (K-12) to show proof of receiving:
- 2 (full) MMR vaccines and 1 varicella vaccine. Pneumococcal vaccine series mandated for students entering Early Learning. Children entering kindergarten, 6th or 9th grades must show proof of receiving 2 varicella (chicken pox) vaccines. The Tdap requirement also continues requiring ALL students entering 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades to receive 1 Tdap vaccine. Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year students entering 6th and 12th grades (only) will be required to receive 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine (6th grade) and 2 doses of meningococcal vaccine (12th grade). UNIT 5 STUDENTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO START SCHOOL WITHOUT THE REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS! The physical exam requirement is the same - a new exam dated within the past year is required for Early learner programs (first entry), Kindergarten, 6th grade and 9th grade. Make an appointment NOW for a physical and immunizations!
