Immunization Requirements

By State of Illinois law, generally all new students are required to present proof of immunity from:

  • Diptheria
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis
  • Rubella (German measles)
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Meningococcal disease for students under 22 years of age beginning in the fall of 2016

The University notifies all new students of the immunization requirement and provides forms and instructions for compliance. Information and forms are also available on the Student Health Service website (https://wellness.uchicago.edu/page/vaccinations-required-enrollment)  They may be returned by email to sccimm@uchospitals.edu, by regular mail, or in person (Student Health Service Immunization Program, 5841 S. Maryland Avenue MC 3052/R100, Chicago IL, 60637). Faxed copies are not accepted.

After the third Friday of the first quarter of registration, students who are not yet compliant will have their subsequent registrations restricted and will not have the restriction lifted until they have become compliant with the immunization requirement. Students who receive this notification are urged to call the Student Health Service at 773-702-4156 to resolve their immunization compliance status.
