Immunizations

What are the Immunization Requirements?

Students are required to provide proof of: 

Three total doses of DTP, DTaP, DT, Td, or Tdap, with one dose being Tdap and one dose (any combination DTP, DTaP, DT, Td, or Tdap) having been administered within the past 10 years
Two doses of MMR (measles-mumps-rubella combined)
One meningococcal vaccine (if you are between the ages of 16 and 22)
International students only: One QuantiFERON or T-SPOT—(Illinois Tech requirement)—must be within four weeks of arrival

Submitting My Immunization Records

The Student Health and Wellness Center is 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, Illinois 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 Illinois Tech. 

How do you use Med +Proctor? 

First, you will need to set up your iit.edu email account. Then, register within the Med + Proctor site by visiting Med + Proctor; click “register” to start a new account. The website is user-friendly and instructions are easy to follow. Simply complete the required information and ensure that your immunization forms are fully completed, stamped, and signed by your medical provider. Simply upload your forms to the Med + Proctor site. 

*There are no fees associated with obtaining Med+Proctor.

Do not bring or email your completed forms to the Student Health and Wellness Center. You must upload ALL forms to the Med + Proctor site. 

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. You can also check the status of your account by clicking on the STATUS or MESSAGE tab at the top of your Med + Proctor page. We encourage you to submit your information as soon as possible. It takes 5-7 business days to be verified after you have completed this process.

If you have difficulty using Med + Proctor, you may contact them by:

  • Browsing the help topics under Student Help
  • Using the chat feature on the lower right side of the screen and emailing help@medproctor.com

Please remember that an immunization HOLD will be placed on your account, preventing registration. Please start this process as soon as possible to ensure there is no delay in registration. Thank you!
