Immunization Information

Immunization Information

State law requires all degree and full-time non-degree college students born after December 31, 1956 to provide proof of immunization or immunity to the following diseases:

*          a tetanus/diphtheria vaccine within the last ten years.  Students must  be re-immunized if  the tetanus is out-of-date.

*          two doses of the Measles, Mumps, Rubella vaccine after the student’s first birthday.  If  the vaccine was administered prior to 1968, you must present laboratory results of your titer tests.  If immunization can not be determined, re-immunization is required.

Required immunizations for health career students include the two doses of the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (or titer showing immunity), one dose of the Tetanus/Diphtheria (administered within the last ten years); two doses of the Varicella vaccine (or titer showing immunity); Hepatitis B series (series of three doses given at appropriate intervals); Mantoux test for Tuberculosis (two-step administered initially, with yearly follow-up while enrolled).

Immunization records are maintained in the Enrollment Management Office, Room 124, Katahdin Hall.   The Health History Form and accompanying immunization records are kept on file for five years after last date of attendance. After five years, the form and immunization information will be shredded.

Questions concerning immunization dates and records should be directed to Nancy Burns in the Enrollment Management Office.  She can be reached at 974-4604 or by email at nburns@emcc.edu.
