PHYSICAL AND IMMUNIZATIONS

It is physical and immunization time if you have a child entering kindergarten, 6th or 9th grade in the fall. Please make an appointment with your child’s doctor today. Completed physicals can be turned in to your child’s current school any time. If your child gets a physical exam over the summer, please turn in the completed form at registration.

Make your appointment today. As the first day of school approaches, it becomes more difficult for you to make an appointment for your child. Don’t let your child be excluded from school because all necessary health information is not on file in the school office. Call your doctor today to schedule an appointment. Don’t forget to complete, date and sign the health history section of the physical.

If you do not have a doctor, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine at 545-8000 and Central Counties Health Centers at 788-2300 are available to assist with your child's health care needs. They will help you schedule an appointment for a physical exam and update your child’s immunizations.

For questions call the nurse at your child’s school.
