HEALTHY START: Complete your child’s health exam and immunization records by August 23

Required Health Exams and Immunizations GraphicStart the new school year right by submitting all the required health exams and immunizations to your child’s school by Friday, August 23.

Students will not be able to attend school after Friday, August 23, unless the required physical and updated immunizations are presented to the school.

The State of Illinois created these requirements in 2020 to protect everyone’s health. The submission deadline is August 23 instead of October 15 as in the past so that everyone can be protected at the start of the year.
