Immunization Requirements and Recommendations
Based on The Centers for Disease Control and the American College Health Association guidelines, Cornell College requires all students to provide documentation that meets one of the following criteria for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR):
- proof of two MMR immunizations
- positive serum titers may be substituted in place of vaccination documentation
Without documented proof of proper MMR immunization, a student's registration will be cancelled.
No other immunizations are required for admittance; however, the American College Health Association recommends that students consider the following vaccines:
- Meningitis A, C, Y, W-135 - initial dose 11-12 years of age, booster dose recommended at age 16 or prior to coming to college
- Serogroup B Meningococcal Vaccine - (MenB4-C, 2 doses, or MenB-FHbp, 3 doses)
- Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis, Vaccine - primary series given in childhood (DT, DTaP, DTP, or TD), booster dose of Tdap given age 11-18, Td/Tdap every 10 years after that
- Chicken Pox (Varicella) - 2 doses
Additional vaccines to consider are:
- HPV - series of 3
- Hepatitis A - series of 2
Please consult your clinician regarding these vaccines. Some of these vaccines are also available at the Cornell College Student Health Clinic.
