473.00 IMMUNIZATION POLICY

 

Cowley College requires all students living in residential housing to receive the meningitis vaccine or sign a waiver indicating their knowledge of the risks of bacterial meningitis and their decision not to be vaccinated.  It is strongly recommended that all students become knowledgeable about meningitis and consider vaccination in order to reduce their risk.

In addition to the meningitis, international students must also complete a Tuberculin screening.  Students can provide proof of a Tuberculin screening from their healthcare provider or this can be done by Student Health Services.

Cowley College, along with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and the Center for Disease Control, recommends all students be immunized against tetanus, diphtheria, hepatitis B, varicella, polio, measles, mumps, and rubella.  Questions about immunizations should be directed to Student Health Services or local health departments.

Cowley Student Services provides the following immunization services at minimal cost to Cowley College students:
