In Illinois, physicals are required for any child of any age new to the Illinois school system and for certain grades. This exam must be completed by a licensed medical professional and cover the requirements set forth by the Illinois State Board of Education and other agencies. This can include ensuring children and teens have the required vaccinations to attend school, as well as examining for other health concerns. At Rapid Healthcare, we offer school physicals to meet the requirements for children of all ages at our walk-in clinic in Bolingbrook, IL.
Parents, guardians and schools need to ensure that students are eligible, safe and healthy for the upcoming academic year. School physicals are the annual wellness checkups that schools require to make sure that the student is healthy enough for the activities that the school offers, especially when it comes to sports activities. The annual checkup gives the parents, guardians, and the doctors an opportunity to ensure a child is healthy, including physical, social and emotional concerns.
