Immunization Requirements

Colorado law and State Health Department regulations require all students,undergraduate and graduate, enrolled in colleges and universities to submit proof of immunization. *Students must submit the completed Certificateof Immunization or an official document from a healthcare provider or school, to Student Health Services before registration.

If your proof of immunity is incomplete, contact Student Health Services @ 970-351-1919, or visit our office on the first floor in Cassidy Hall to sign a provisional agreement to submit complete information within 14 days. You will not be allowed to register for the next term unless the requirements have been satisfied, per Colorado State Statute.

A college student is defined by the State Board of Health as any student who is enrolled for one or more classes at a college or university and who is physically present at the institution. Students who are auditing classes are included, but students who are taking only correspondence, online, or off-campus classes are not included.

*Beginning July 1, 1992, college students who were born after January 1, 1957, must have had two measles, two mumps, and two rubella doses, the first administered no earlier than 4 days before the first birthday, and the second at least 28 calendar days after the first dose.

CDC Recommended Immunizations for Adults

MENINGITIS VACCINE
The State of Colorado requires the Meningitis vaccine for Freshmen living in student housing and it is highly recommended for any student living in student housing.

If you are a Freshman living in student housing, you must acknowledge that you have received the vaccine. If you have elected not to have the vaccine, you must still read and acknowledge that you understand the risks of this deadly disease when you complete your housing contract.

Meningococcal disease is highly contagious, but a largely preventable infection of the spinal
cord fluid and the fluid that surrounds the brain. Scientific evidence suggests that college
students living in dormitory facilities are at a modestly increased risk of contracting Meningococcal disease. Immunization against Meningococcal disease decreases the risk of contracting the disease. Additional information about this disease is available online at the CDC website or contact your family physician for advice.

The CDC and The American College Health Association recommend a Meningitis booster for all College students if it has been three or more years since your last dose.
