Vaccinate before it's too late!
Brittney Holcomb, Immunization Program Manager, Student Health Services
Immunizations offer safe and effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases and safeguard the health of our students and the community. Our goal is to help students stay well so they can stay in class and be successful! OSU’s policy of required immunizations helps us with that goal.
Required immunizations include:
- Meningococcal (MCV4): 1 dose for all students under age 22, received on or after turning age 16
- Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis (Tdap): 1 dose within the last 10 years
- Hepatitis B: 3 doses
- Varicella (Chickenpox): 2 doses or the date of the disease
- Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR): 2 doses
Though not required, we also highly recommend the Meningococcal B vaccination and an annual flu shot.
Students are encouraged to satisfy their immunization requirements and complete the required health history form as soon as possible. Vaccinations are available at Student Health Services, the OSU pharmacy in Plageman Building, and through many community healthcare providers. Official documentation may be submitted in person, through US mail, or online via our secure patient portal at https://myhealth.oregonstate.edu/
