Additional Vaccines

Vaccine preventable diseases are still occurring on college campuses throughout the country.  The staff at Student Health Services strongly urges students and families to give careful thought to the following recommendations.  These recommendations are taken from the American College Health Association (ACHA) Vaccine Preventable Diseases Committee, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and Travax. You can purchase vaccines on the Marketplace tab of our website.
