State of Illinois Mandatory Health Requirements for Students
All Incoming Freshmen
Required to have a physical examination and complete immunizations dated within 12 months of the first day of school. We suggest that you make an appointment now for a physical exam. Any student NOT
in compliance with these health requirements will be excluded from school on October 15. Required health forms must be turned in to the SHS nurses by June 22.
All Students Entering Grades 9-12 in 2012-13 NEW
Due to an increase in the number of cases of pertussis (Whooping Cough) in Illinois, there is a new immunization requirement. All students entering sixth through 12th grades in the 2012-13 school year will need the Tdap
vaccine before the first day of school in August. Tdap
is one of four combination vaccines used to prevent tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Whooping Cough). The other three combination vaccines are DTaP, DT and Td. Students who have not already received Tdap are required to receive one Tdap dose regardless of when they received a DTaP, DT or Td dose. Please check with your healthcare provider as soon as possible to determine if your student’s Tdap vaccination is up to date.
The SHS nurses will need your completed vaccine record.
