|Chicken Pox (Varicella)||All students must have evidence of immunity documented by an antibody titer OR written documentation of 2 doses of varicella vaccine, given at least 4 weeks apart.Please note that just having a history of checkenpox is not enough to satisfy the requirements of immunity.|
|Rubella (German Measles)
|Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis||All students should receive the Tdap vaccination within the last ten years. Tdap can be administered regardless of the interval since the last tetanus or diphtheria-toxoid containing vaccine.

|Polio||If the student is not going to travel outside the western hemisphere it is not necessary to provide documentation of polio vaccination. However, if the student will be going on trips to Africa or Asia--or has traveled outside of the Western Hemisphere within the last 5 years-- then the student must be vaccinated or obtain a serologic study to document immunity to the three poliovirus serotypes (P1, P2, and P3).|
|Flu Vaccine||NURSING students only must receive 1 dose of the flu vaccine each year prior to December 1. It is highly recommended that all students receive an annual flu vaccination, but is not required at this time.|
