Immunizations

We require a copy of your official immunization records.  If you are current with the immunizations listed, just send us a copy of that record.  If you are not current on these immunizations, you must become current as dictated by law.  Please note that self-declared immunization or immunizations submitted on a questionnaire or a medical physical form cannot be utilized.

When you are on campus, you may go to the Vinson Health Center for these immunizations at a reduced cost.  You may also obtain immunizations at your local public health department at a reduced cost.

Please forward the information to the Department of Respiratory Care at Midwestern State University.
