Vaccinations Policy

In accordance with Illinois College Student Immunization Act 11TLCS 20, Millikin University requires verification of immunity for Diphtheria/ Tetanus, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. Exact dates are required for all immunizations, date of disease and/or serological test results. If serology titer indicates lack of immunity, vaccines must be administered. Although Hepatitis B and Meningococcal Vaccines are not required, the American College Health Association (ACHA) and our physician recommends that students consider being immunized. Immunizations administered prior to the first birthday are invalid.
