Vaccine-preventable diseases continue to occur on campuses and pose a significant threat to the health, safety and welfare of our campus community. Immunizations offer safe and effective protection. The United States is experiencing a re-emergence of these diseases, in part due to factors such as un-immunized persons and global travel. The American College Health Association (ACHA) strongly supports the use of vaccines to protect the health of our individual students and our campus communities consistent with recommendations of the ACHA Vaccine Preventable Diseases Advisory Committee, the Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices (ACIP) recommendations published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
It is the goal of the university and our Center for Health and Wellness to provide adequate protection against vaccine-preventable disease and to promote a healthy and safe college environment by requiring students to be vaccinated against and/or screened for certain highly contagious diseases. The goal is best achieved prior to the first year of enrollment at Capital University. Therefore, students will be required to provide proof of the below listed immunizations prior to July 1 if they are entering the university fall semester and by December 1 if entering the university spring semester.
All entering first year and transfer students born after 1956 must demonstrate proof of immunization against the following diseases:
Please refer to individual major handbook for specific requirements
All entering first year, transfer and English as a Second Language (ESL) international students must provide documentation of a PPD skin test or T-spot/Quantiferon Gold test regardless of prior BCG inoculation. See separate International TB policy for further details
A student may request a waiver from any vaccination for medical reasons or if vaccination conflicts with religious beliefs. The application for waiver is to be made in writing to the Center for Health and Wellness before July 1st if entering fall semester or December 1st if entering spring semester
If the case of an outbreak of a contagious disease on campus for which it is documented that the student has not been immunized, the university reserves the right to ask the student to leave campus until the outbreak/incubation period has resolvedFor more information please reference the following websites:http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/adults/reasons-to-vaccinate.htmhttp://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/acip/index.htmlhttp://www.acha.org/Publications/docs/ACHA_RIPI_April_2014.pdfhttp://www.cdc.gov/tb/
