Congratulations on your acceptance and decision to attend Wichita State University. Student Health Services is your on campus source for health care and we look forward to serving your health care needs.
Universities bring together large concentrations of persons with various levels of tolerance for exposure to disease. Periodically, outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases have caused disruption of campus activities.
To help us provide a healthy environment at WSU, we strongly recommend students have proof of receiving the following immunizations. These immunization recommendations are based on guidelines from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American College Health Association (ACHA) for all college-bound students.
Required vaccinations and screening:
All first-time housing residents must submit proof of meningitis vaccination. To meet the vaccination requirement, you must have at least one dose of meningitis vaccine on or after your 16th birthday. If a student chooses not to receive the meningitis vaccine, they must contact Student Health Services at 316-978-3620 for information on how to request a waiver form.
Recommended vaccinations for all college students:
Student Health Services must have proof of your immunizations. You can submit copies of your official vaccination records to any of the following:
Thank you for taking time to ensure that you have proper immunizations and for providing this information for our records. We wish you a successful and healthy college experience.
