Influenza and the influenza vaccine information

The Illinois School Code requires all students entering the ninth grade or transferring from another school, irrespective of grade, to present proof of physical examination and required immunizations. Information on required and recommended vaccines (including influenza and the influenza vaccine) is available at http://www.dph.illinois.gov/. Failure to comply with the above requirements by October 15 of the current school year will result in the student’s exclusion from school until the required health forms are presented to the school, subject to certain exceptions.
