In accordance with the Child and Student Health Examination and Immunization Code, Part 665.240 (l) (2) any child entering the 12th grade shall show proof of having received 2 doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine prior to entering the 12th grade. The first dose shall have been received on or after the 11th birthday, and the second dose shall have been received on or after the 16th birthday, and at least 8 weeks after the first dose.
Please discuss with your child’s medical provider to determine if he/she has received the two meningococcal conjugate vaccinations. You are required to have your child receive this vaccination if it has not already been given. The medical provider must provide the dates the vaccine was given, along with the medical provider’s signature. You must provide the required proof of immunization to the York High School Health Office by May 15th, 2019 . Without proof of this vaccination, your child will be excluded from school in the fall of 2019, as described in the School Code of Illinois and per Elmhurst District 205 procedure. Students who have been excluded from school will not be able to attend any classes or participate in any athletic or extracurricular activities until the required proof of vaccination is provided.
If you believe that your child is up-to-date with this immunization or if you have any questions, please contact the health office at 630-617-2438.
