According to the Ohio Revised Code Section 1713.55, all students who live on campus must disclose whether they have been vaccinated against Meningococcal Disease and Hepatitis B.
Please note that this law does not require vaccination of the student. It only requires disclosure of vaccine status. All new students will provide that information on their housing contract.
For students who choose to be vaccinated, vaccines will be available in the Student Health Center. There is a charge for each vaccination (note that the Hepatitis B vaccination is a series of injections). Please contact the Student Health Center for pricing and availability.
Information about Meningococcal Disease and/or Hepatitis B, as compiled and presented by the Ohio Department of Health, is available here.
If you have questions about the process, please contact us (please note that Residence Life can clarify the expectations but we are unable to answer specific questions about either Meningococcal Disease and/or Hepatitis B). If you have questions about Meningococcal Disease and/or Hepatitis B, please contact the Student Health Center or visit the Centers for Disease Control.
