Why do I need to submit these forms?

The Illinois College Immunization Code requires that college students be immunized against tetanus, diphtheria, measles, mumps, and rubella. 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.

What are the vaccination and tuberculosis requirements:

Illinois requires all college students to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. These include:

 Measles - Two vaccinations required, on or after the first birthday. Must be live vaccine, which was available after 1967
 Mumps - One vaccine
 Rubella - One vaccine
 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.

You can receive any or all of the required immunizations at McKinley for a charge.

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.

How do I complete TB Screening requirements?

Only international students are required to complete the TB screening form. Upon arrival to campus, international students must visit the ISSS office and get their I-Cards prior to coming to McKinley to initiate their TB screening. Do not complete a TB screening or chest x-ray in your home country.

Is a physical exam required?

No, a physical exam is not required for admission. The medical background provided by the student on the Medical History form is sufficient.

I have to submit my forms late, what will happen?

There is not an immediate penalty for submitting the forms after the deadline; however, it is very important to submit them as soon as possible. Students who do not submit by the deadline will receive email notificationthat failure to comply by a designated date will not be able to add or drop classes during the current semester and register for classes during subsequent semesters.

Will I be notified that my documents were received?

Yes. You will receive an email notification to confirm receipt of your documents/compliance with State immunization requirements. If your records are incomplete, you will receive an email informing you of any missing immunization requirements.

Are there any exemptions to the requirements?
