Immunization Requirements

Measles   

  • The student must be immunized with two doses of live measles vaccine.
  • Both doses must be given after 1967.
  • The first dose given on or after the first birthday and the second dose must be given at least thirty days after the first.

 Rubella (German Measles)

The student must be immunized with vaccine on or after the first birthday.

 Mumps

The student must be immunized with vaccine on or after the first birthday.

 Tetanus, Diphtheria

The student must have received a Td booster within the last ten years.

 Meningitis

 Tuberculosis

All international students must also provide documentation that they have been tested for tuberculosis in the United States, the date the test was performed, and the results of the test, or submit to a test administered on campus shortly after arrival.

In lieu of dates of immunization, students may also provide one of the following:

4.  Select the “Immunization Compliance” task from the search results

5.  Click the green Start button

6.  Provide the required immunization data

You will automatically be directed to the Immunization Compliance Form where you will have the ability to enter dates of immunization, provide supporting documentation, or submit documentation for medical and religious exemptions.

Failure to Comply

Students who do not provide the required immunization data will be prevented from registering for the semester or session following their matriculation semester.

 What are the next steps?

For those who are able to provide all dates of vaccination, your status will automatically be updated to compliant and the hold on your account will be lifted.  No further action is required.  You are now considered compliant at all IU campuses.

Students who provide dates that do not meet the immunization requirements will be prompted to make corrections.  Until all appropriate dates have been provided, a student is not compliant.

Medical documentation submitted to support exemption to the immunization policy will be reviewed and either approved or denied.  If documentation is sufficient and all other requirements have been met, students will be marked as compliant and no further action will be required.  If additional documentation is needed, students will be notified via university email as to how to proceed.  

Documentation submitted for religious exemption will be reviewed and if approved as acceptable documentation and all other requirements have been met, students will be marked as compliant and no further action will be required.  If additional documentation is needed, students will be notified via university email as to how to proceed. 

 Why is this required?

Indiana University will take all reasonable measures to ensure the safety of members of the university community during global and local infectious disease events. These may include implementing infection control guidelines designed to stop or slow the spread of infectious diseases.  The law stipulates that "if a student fails to comply . . . by the beginning of the student’s second academic term, the postsecondary institution shall prohibit the student from matriculating in the campus of the postsecondary institution, where applicable, until the requirements are met."
