Today is the day… students in District 186 must have proof that they have all their required vaccinations by the end of the day, or they won’t be allowed to return to class on Tuesday, after the holiday weekend.
District officials did not have an updated count Thursday of how many students still haven’t turned in that paperwork, but say the number is dropping every day.
Sangamon County public health officials say they were told earlier in the week that as many as 800 students didn’t have the paperwork on file at that time.
The health department held a vaccination clinic Thursday… and another one, by appointment only, is planned for today at SIU Healthcare. To schedule an appointment, call 545-8000.
