CDC Recommendations for Optional Vaccines
Hepatitis B - A serious infectious disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver. The highest rate of disease occurs in individuals between the ages of 20 and 49. Living in close quarters (like a residence hall) can increase the risk of exposure. There is no cure for Hepatitis B (Hep B), but the infection can be prevented by vaccination. The American College Health Association (AHCA) recommends that all college students be vaccinated.

Meningitis - Bacterial meningitis is a very serious, potentially fatal illness. While it is fairly rare, first-year students living in residence halls have a statistically higher chance of getting the disease than young adults of the same age who aren't college freshmen living in residence halls.

Online Students

Course registration is not impacted by the presence of immunization holds. (IM Hold and MH Hold). If 100% of your classes are online, you are not mandated to meet the immunization requirement. The immunization holds will always remain on your account and if your online class requires you to come to campus for any reason (even orientation) or meet in group discussions off campus, you will be required to fulfill the immunization requirements. If you are unable to register for an online course, please contact the department hosting the course to resolve the issue.
