K. Immunizations

Oklahoma City University complies with Oklahoma law requiring all students, including undergraduate, graduate, and law students, to provide documentation of having received the following vaccinations:

  • MEASLES, MUMPS, RUBELLA (MMR): Documentation of 2 shots or serologies is required. List either the two dates of the MMRs received or the individual titer dates and results. The first MMR must have been received on or after your first birthday and there must be at least 28 days between the first and second MMR. If received prior to your first birthday or there is less than 28 days between the two MMRs received, you are required to have another MMR or show proof of positive titers.
  • HEPATITIS B: If you are in the process of receiving your Hep B immunizations for the first time, you are required to have the three-shot series and provide the date. If you are have completed your Hep B immunizations more than one year ago, please provide the date vaccines were received or the titer date and result. If the 3-dose series is needed, then the doses should be in a 0, 1, 6 month interval.
  • TETANUS: Booster is not required, but highly recommended within the last 5 years.
  • MENINGITIS: All students living in on-campus housing are required to either get the Meningitis vaccine or sign a waiver against the vaccine.
  • TUBERCULIN SKIN TEST: (Required Mantoux PPD): International students are required to have a TB skin test within the first 6 weeks of the first semester of enrollment. For 2019-2020 academic year, the official dates to have the TB skin test completed are October 1st for the Summer and Fall semester and March 1st for the Spring semester. The TB skin test is a small injection given in the forearm. All skin tests need to be read within 48 -72 hours or another test must be done. The cost for the test at Campus Health is $20. Please list the dates and results (in millimeters) for previous PPD’s received. Instead of a PPD, it is acceptable annually to provide negative QuantiFERON gold blood test results within 60 days prior to the first semester. QuantiFERON gold blood tests can be completed at Campus Health at the students cost for $75. If the PPD is positive (10mm and above), a chest x-ray is required. The x-ray date along with a copy of the physician’s report must be submitted to Campus Health. An x-ray older than one year will be accepted if you have completed the full INH treatment and have been symptom free for one year. Documentation must be submitted to campus health in person.

Note: For international students who have received the Bacille Calmette-Guerin Vaccine (BCG), your PPD will likely test positive regardless of any exposure, this procedure is still required since the vaccine is not resistant to all strains of TB.

Most of these vaccines are available from Campus Health or in the Oklahoma City Community.

Personal or Religious Exemptions:

The law allows that some students or their parents may have personal or religious tenets or beliefs that prohibit them from being immunized. In order to claim this exemption, a student over age 18 (or a parent or guardian if the student is under age 18) must sign a waiver that must be on file with the University. Waivers are available on the Campus Health page under immunization links here.

An enrollment hold will be placed on the records of any student who is not in compliance with Oklahoma law. An enrollment hold restricts students abilities to enroll for additional semesters. Enrollment holds will be placed after October 1st in the Fall semester and March 1st in the Spring semester.

When turning in records:

  • No original records will be accepted. Make a copy of the immunization record for Admissions and keep the original in a safe location for your records. Write your name and student ID number on the records before submitting them online here.
  • Call or email Campus Health with questions about immunization records and requirements at studenthealth@okcu.edu or (405)208-5090. Do not email immunization records to Campus Health.
