A well-immunized student population is important for the overall health of the university community and, most of all, you. The ISU Health Center strongly recommends vaccines noted below.
Although ISU does not require any specific immunizations against communicable diseases for general enrollment, many vaccines are recommended upon entering college. Some programs within the university (such as the health science programs) do have requirements.
We recommend that you maintain a record of all immunizations they have received. Documentation of immunizations is needed for some academic programs, employment, or foreign travel.
If you have any questions about these immunization recommendations, please call us at (208) 282-2330.
The American College Health Association and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommend a few specific vaccines:
- Hepatitis B (HBV): A two-dose series of vaccine is recommended for all young adults prior to entering college.
- Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR): Two doses of live virus vaccine, both given after the first birthday.
- Meningococcal Vaccine: One dose, given within three years before starting college. Current recommendations encourage the vaccination of all college students against meningococcal disease.
- Tetanus-Diphtheria (Td): An initial series of three or four shots usually given in childhood; boosters every ten years thereafter.
- Pertussis (Tdap): Beginning in 2005, a booster dose of pertussis vaccine is recommended for adolescents and young adults; it is usually administered with tetanus vaccine.
- Varicella (chicken pox): If you did not have chicken pox as a child, you should get immunized with the varicella vaccine.
