In the case of an outbreak of a vaccine preventable communicable disease, students who do not have written proof of immunizations on file will be excluded from class until they prove immunity or the episode has passed. Students should be fully immunized against communicable diseases such as Measles (Rubella), Mumps, Rubella, Polio, Tetanus/Diphtheria (Updating Tetanus/diphtheria once to the Tdap is recommended).
Residential and Health Professions students and student athletes must have written proof of immunity.
Hepatitis B immunization is recommended for all students and required for Health Professions students (or a signed declination). Freedom from Tuberculosis (TB) must be documented for all Residential, Health Professions and Education students who are participating in clinical/practical. Free TB testing is done in the Health Center. Meningitis vaccine is available locally.
