All students, graduate and undergraduate, taking 6 or more hours are required to comply with Illinois requirements for documenting immunizations before the first day of class.
Students must go to Wellness Center Online, login and document these Immunizations:
Two MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) after the first birthday
A TDAP (tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis) within the past 10 years.
One Meningitis vaccine since the 16th birthday for students under 22 years of age.
Students over 57 years of age need document only the TDAP requirement.
International students are required to have a history of two additional tetanus.
Waivers require an appointment at the Wellness Center. Please call 708-524-6229 to schedule.
Fines: Failure to comply with the law will result in the assessment of fines of $75 per semester and/or the withholding of registration, grades or transcripts until compliance is complete.
Immunization records are available from your high school, previous university or your personal physician and may be uploaded at dom.edu/Wellness. The Wellness Center can affordably provide any missing immunizations and blood tests to verify and document immunity. If you are submitting a blood test as proof of immunity, you need to supply numerical values.
If you have any questions regarding immunization records, please call the Wellness Center at (708) 524-6229.
