Adequate immunization for each required vaccine or vaccine component consists of the following:
Varicella: two doses of varicella containing vaccine administered at least 28 days apart and no earlier than 4 days before the first birthday
Laboratory evidence of immunity
Verified history of varicella disease documented by a physician, advanced practice nurse, physician's assistant or health department.
Required for any student less than 22 years of age who will be residing in on-campus housing. Failure to provide adequate documentation will prevent you from moving into on-campus housing upon your arrival.
Adequate proof consists of documentation from a health care provider showing a single dose of conjugate vaccine (Menactra®, Menveo®, and MenHibrix®) given on or after the 16th birthday. If your initial vaccine for meningitis was given prior to the age of 16 years, immunization requirements will not be met unless an additional booster vaccine is given after your 16th birthday. This is in accordance with the "Recommended Immunization Schedule" published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Meningococcal Serogroup B Vaccine is not currently required but is recommended. The two vaccines currently licensed for use in persons aged 10-25 are Bexsero® and Trumenba®.
You can obtain more information regarding vaccination against meningococcal disease at Meningococcal Vaccines for Preteens, Teens.
Recommended but not required. Please complete the Hepatitis B waiver which is located on the Med+Proctor Portal.
A student is exempt from the immunization requirements if:
A student who has been exempted from a particular vaccination must comply with the immunization requirements for any vaccines from which he or she has not been exempted.
