Recommendations for Institutional Prematriculation Immunizations
Journal of American College Health, v59 n5 p450-458 2011
The recommendations presented in this article are provided to colleges and universities to facilitate the implementation of a comprehensive institutional prematriculation immunization policy. Vaccine-preventable diseases continue to occur on American campuses. In response to changing epidemiology and the introduction of new vaccines, the ACHA Vaccine Preventable Diseases Committee monitors age-appropriate public health recommendations and updates these recommendations accordingly. The committee recognizes that many colleges and universities are mandated by state law to require certain vaccinations for matriculating students. States and educational institutions may require fewer or more vaccines, while some may only recommend certain vaccinations. This document is intended as a guideline that is consistent with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
