Wright State University requires several vaccines for on campus residents and strongly encourages them for others. Incoming students who are living on campus must submit documentation to MedProctor as evidence of these immunizations.
- Fall Semester: August 1
- Spring Semester: December 1
- Summer Semester: April 1
The following vaccines are required for on-campus students at Wright State University:
- Tdap: One adult dose in the last 10 years.
- Hepatitis B: Three doses of Hepatitis B OR lab report confirming immunity.
- MMR: Two doses of MMR (second dose must have occurred on or after first birthday); OR two doses of Measles, two doses Mumps, and one dose of Rubella; OR lab reporting confirming immunity for each.
- Varicella: Two doses of varicella OR lab report confirming immunity.
- Polio: Three or more doses of IPV or OPV. If the third dose of either series was received prior to the fourth birthday, a fourth dose is required. If a combination of OPV and IPV was received, four doses of either vaccine are required.
- Meningococcal conjugate (ACWY)*: One (1) dose since age 16. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that college students under the age of 25 consult with their health care provider about obtaining the Meningococcal B vaccination in addition to the Meningococcal ACWY vaccination.
In addition to these required immunizations, screenings for tuberculosis will be required for the following individuals:
