Submitting My Immunization Records
We are pleased to announce Med + Proctor, an electronic medical clearance platform, as our new innovative strategy to monitor and collect your immunization information. As you know, IL State law requires documentation of childhood vaccines when entering a secondary institution. Med + Proctor is HIPAA and FERPA compliant.
This new strategy of monitoring immunization compliance will streamline your clearance and help you avoid unnecessary holds that prevent registration. This will allow you to focus on other important matters as you prepare for your successful tenure here at IL Tech.

Once you have submitted your immunization records to Med + Proctor , we will review them for compliance and communicate a successful approval or any needed action items through your myiit email. It is important that you are checking your MyIIT email portal for communication should you be out of compliance and need to submit any additional forms .
