Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (210 ILCS 85/6.26)
    Sec. 6.26. Immunization against influenza virus and pneumococcal disease.
    (a) Every hospital shall adopt an influenza and pneumococcal immunization policy that includes, but need not be limited to, the following:
        (1) Procedures for identifying patients age 50 or
older for influenza immunization and 65 or older for pneumococcal immunization and, at the discretion of the facility, other patients at risk.
        (2) Procedures for offering immunization against
influenza virus when available between September 1 and April 1, and against pneumococcal disease upon admission or discharge, to patients in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that are most recent to the time of vaccination, unless contraindicated.
        (3) Procedures for ensuring that patients offered
immunization, or their guardians, receive information regarding the risks and benefits of vaccination.
    The hospital shall provide a copy of its influenza and pneumococcal immunization policy to the Department upon request.
    (b) A home rule unit may not regulate immunization against influenza virus and pneumococcal disease in a manner inconsistent with the regulation of such immunizations under this Section. This subsection is a limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution on the concurrent exercise by home rule units of powers and functions exercised by the State.
