Immunizations

Which Immunizations Do I Need?

Different types of students are required to have different vaccinations. Please read this page carefully to make sure you know what you need.

All Students

Oklahoma law requires all students — no matter what year or program you're in (undergraduate, graduate and law students) — to be vaccinated against the following:

  • Hepatitis B

  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)

If you've already been vaccinated, we need copies of your proof of vaccination. Please bring copies to the Campus Health Clinic.

If you don't have copies of your proof of vaccination, don't worry: There's a simple blood test we administer to determine your immunities.

Campus Housing Residents

Dormitory residents on campus:

In addition to Hepatitis B and MMR, dorm residents must be vaccinated against Meningococcal disease, or else sign a waiver declining this vaccine. Oklahoma state law requires this.

On-campus housing residents: 

In addition to Hepatitis B and MMR, dorm residents must be vaccinated against Meningococcal disease, or else sign a waiver declining this vaccine. OCU requires this.

The meningitis vaccine is available for purchase during walk-in hours in the Campus Health Clinic.

Off-Campus Residents

OCU students who don't live in any form of campus housing are only required to be immune to Hepatitis B and MMR.
