Freshmen & Seniors - Information from Nurse Kelly (kstrader@bismarck.k12.il.us)

  • FRESHMEN - ALL incoming freshmen need a school physical.  Incoming freshmen will not require a sports physical if they are playing sports because the school physical is sufficient.  All incoming freshmen must have their vaccinations up-to-date.  If you do not know if your vaccinations are up-to-date, please contact your primary care provider.
  • SENIORS - All seniors require their 2nd meningococcal vaccine.  If a meningococcal vaccine was received after the age of 16, a 2nd meningococcal vaccine is not necessary.  If a meningococcal vaccine was received in sixth grade, which is common practice for sixth graders, the second meningococcal vaccine is due the first day of senior year.  The required meningococcal vaccine covers meningitis A, C, W and Y.  The vaccine for meningitis B, often called Bexsero, is not required.
