IMPORTANT NEWS FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR STARTING 2016-2017
The state of Illinois has recently changed the law with regards to immunization for varicella (chickenpox), mumps and rubella.
- Beginning with school year 2016 – 2017, any child entering ninth, tenth and eleventh grade for the first time shall show proof of having received two doses of varicella vaccine, the first dose on or after the first birthday and the second dose no less than four weeks after the first dose, or proof of prior varicella disease. Even those upperclassmen who aren't required to provide proof of receiving a 2nd varicella vaccine should speak with their healthcare provider about whether it is recommended for them. All students entering school at any grade level (kindergarten through 12th) shall show proof of having received two doses of live mumps virus and two doses of live rubella vaccine.
- Beginning with the school year 2015 – 2016, students entering 12th grade and above level shall show proof of having received two doses of meningitis vaccine. If the first dose is administered when the student is 16 yr or older, only one dose is required.
Seniors and above will be required to show proof of having had the meningitis vaccine prior to Schedule Distribution in August. Please keep a copy of this proof prior to turning it in to the health office.
If parents/guardians or health care providers have questions about the new requirement, the Illinois Dept. of Public Health can be contacted at their toll free number: 1-800-526-4372.
