Immunizations

Due to ongoing administrative development, we will be closed from 2–3 p.m. every Tuesday.

****UPDATE****

IL State Law vaccine requirements were updated in the summer of 2016 to include at least one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine.

*All new admissions under the age of 22 shall show proof of having at least one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine on or after 16 years of age.

Newly admitted students and students who started in the Fall of 2016 will have to meet this requirement and will have until November 1, 2017 to become compliant with the updated Il state law.

Illinois State law and IL Tech requires university students who are enrolled at least half-time to be immunized against certain communicable diseases. You are required to submit proof of your immunizations to the Student Health and Wellness Center. The SHWC clinical staff can provide the appropriate immunizations should you need them.

Appointments for vaccines cannot be made online through the Patient Portal. You may walk-in Monday - Friday from 9-11am and 1-4pm to get immunized.

Flu Shots are available During Immunization Walk-in hours
