Proof of immunity must be signed/certified by a health care provider or public health official. International students are required to undergo tuberculosis screening when they arrive on campus.

Vaccination and Tuberculosis Requirements for Registration:

Illinois requires all college students to be immunizedagainst certain vaccine-preventable diseases. These Include:

 Measles - Two vaccinations required, on or after the first birthday. Must be live vaccine, which was available after May 1, 1971

 Tetanus/diphtheria US Citizens and Permanent Residents: booster within 10 years of the first day of the start of classes. International Students: documentation of at least three tetanus and diphtheria vaccinations, the third given within 10 years of the first day of the start of classes.

Are there fees for TB Screening and immunizations I may be required to receive?

TB Screening consists of completion of a paper questionnaire and a Quantiferon TB Gold blood test. There is a charge for the blood test. You can receive any or all of the required immunizations at McKinley for a charge.

What will happen if I donít submit the forms?
