School and Daycare Requirements 

NEW IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR ILLINOIS!

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year students entering 6th, 7th, and 12th grades (only) will be required to receive:

 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine (6th or 7th grade)

 2 doses of meningococcal vaccine (12th grade)  

  • Please note that Tdap is different than the DTaP vaccine given to children under age 7. Tdap is now recommended as a single booster dose for children over age 11 and adults, or children age 7-10 who are not fully immunized against pertussis (whooping cough).
