On July 21, 2016, the Illinois Joint Committee on Administrative Rules revised and adopted the Illinois College Student Immunization Act [110 ILCS 20], administered by the Illinois Department of Public Health . On August 5, 2016, these revisions were published. These new regulations added to the immunizations which had been previously needed for matriculation to all public and private colleges and universities.
Compliance with this act requires all persons born on or after January 1, 1957 entering a four year public or private institution of higher education to provide proof of immunization. The following proof of immunity is required:
Students must provide the Health & Counseling Services - Medical Clinic with proof of immunity. Please see below table for preferred deadlines, and deadlines which records must be received and validated by in order to avoid penalties. Failure to have verified immunization records by the end of the 2nd week of the semester will result in a registration hold being placed on the student's account, preventing them from registering for future classes. Failure to have verified immunization records by the end of the 4th week of the semester will result in a $35 non-compliance charge.
