The Illinois College Student Immunization Act (110-ILCS 20) requires ALL students enrolled in six (6) or more credit hours per semester (on the Romeoville campus) to provide written evidence of current immune status with respect to certain communicable diseases. You are required to submit an up to date copy of your immunization (shot) record to the Health Services office here on campus. This is separate from any academic program requirements.
Deadline: The required documentation must be submitted to Health Services before the 6th week of the first term enrolled to avoid a non-refundable $50 late fee and a Health Services Hold for future class registration. The Health Services Hold will be removed only after the required documentation is received. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Vaccinations REQUIRED by the State of Illinois for college students include tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella and meningococcal vaccine:
Students born before 1957 are exempt from the above MMR requirements but must provide proof of a Tdap vaccination administered in the last 10 years. If you haven’t had one, you will need to get one.
Immunized as required by state law - Applies to all students 21 and younger, particularly students living in residence halls. A second vaccine MUST be given if the first vaccine was given before the age of 16.
