Health & Immunizations

The Illinois Post-Secondary Educational Institution Immunization Law (Public Act 85-1315) requires that all new students show documentation of immunity to tetanus/diphtheria, measles, rubella and mumps before they can register for classes.

Important: You will not be permitted to enroll in classes or move into your assigned residence hall until Monmouth College receives ALL immunization documentation.

We have included the "Notice of Immunity Requirements" for all students and the Illinois Department of Health - "Certificate of Immunity" Forms online in PDF format.

Checklist of State Requirements:

  1. Have your family physician complete the "Certificate of Immunity". All dates and signatures must be filled in for it to be valid.
  2. Illinois residents may submit their school health form "Certificate of Child Health Examination". ALL immunizations listed above MUST be listed. If not, obtain other signed documentation for other immunizations.
  3. Students born before 1-1-1957 are EXEMPT from these requirements. Other exemptions are listed on the "Certificate of Immunity".
