 Immunizations and Examinations

Immunizations: In Illinois, children enrolled in any grade need proof of up-to-date immunizations. As of fall 2012, the State of Illinois requires that all students entering grades 6, 7 and 8 provide proof of the Tdap immunization to protect against whooping cough. This immunization has been recommended for children 10 years and older for several years, and most local physicians have been including this as part of the immunization routine. Visit the Illinois State Board of Education website for a list of required immunizations.

Health Examination: All Illinois children enrolling in kindergarten and grade 6, and any student enrolling for the first time in an Illinois school, are required to have a completed Health Examination. The examination must have been performed within a year of the student’s start date. The form should be returned to the school nurse. Any child who has not returned the required documentation of a health examination will be excluded from school on October 15.

Dental Examination: All children in kindergarten, grade 2 and grade 6, and any student enrolling for the first time in an Illinois school, are required to have an oral health examination by a licensed dentist by May 15 of that current school year. The examination must have been performed within 18 months of the May 15 deadline. The completed form should be turned into the school nurse. 

Eye Examination: All children enrolling in kindergarten and any student enrolling for the first time in an Illinois school are required to have an eye examination performed by an optometrist or medical doctor who performs eye exams. Documentation of the examination must be on file with school nurse prior to October 15. The exam must be completed within one year.
