WSU does not have an institutional immunization policy requiring students to have immunizations before attending classes.
Immunizations for Class
There are several programs within individual Colleges, however, that may have requirements for students enrolled in their programs. These requirements will be determined by each College and will be outlined in their study curriculum. Some immunizations may be pre-requisites for clinical rotations.
If you were immunized entirely within the state of Utah, you may request your records through the Utah Statewide Immunization Information System (USIIS). If requesting your records yourself, this process can take up to 2-4 business days.
In some cases, you may be asked to produce proof of immunity to a certain disease, with or without proof of vaccination. The Student Health Center can run a blood tests, called a titer, to measure your immunity. There is a variable fee associated with this service. Please call ahead for pricing.
Flu Shots are available on a seasonal, first-come-first-serve basis. We encourage students to come into the Health Center early in fall semester to ensure that they are able to receive a vaccine. Flu shots are also available through community resources and are typically covered 100% by most insurance plans.
Flu shots are free through the Student Health Center.
The flu vaccine is designed to protect against flu strains research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. Getting the flu vaccine soon after it becomes available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season.
The Tdap vaccine is a combination vaccine that protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough). Adults should receive a Tdap vaccine every 10 years. Pregnant women should receive a Tdap vaccine during their third trimester to protect themselves and their baby from contracting pertussis.
The Tdap vaccine is $40 at the Student Health Center.
