Wellness Center Immunizations
The immunization policy is designed to protect the health of all students. Students who fail to comply will have a hold placed on class registration and/or will be denied class attendance pending satisfactory completion of required data. A licensed health care provider must certify immunization data; home records or self-reports are unacceptable. Copies of school or military immunization records will be accepted with appropriate dates and signatures indicated.
MMR (Measles/Mumps/Rubella): All students born after December 31, 1956 must provide proof of two doses administered on or after January 1, 1968 and on or after the first birthday. The second dose of MMR must be administered 30 days or more after the first dose. Alternately, students may provide copies of laboratory reports indicating positive antibody titers for these diseases. Students born prior to December 31, 1956 are considered to have natural immunity.
Hepatitis B and Meningococcal Meningitis: Although neither campus has ever experienced an outbreak of bacterial meningitis, a number of college and university campuses across the nation have, sometimes with dire consequences to the life and health of the students, faculty and staff involved. Hepatitis B is a more insidious disease; students can become infected and pass the virus to others before they realize they are ill. All students who reside in University housing must either document the immunizations for Hepatitis B and Meningococcal Meningitis or complete a waiver. We urge you to discuss these concerns with your personal physician and consider vaccination. There will be opportunities for vaccination at campus-sponsored clinics to be announced.
