Immunization Requirements for New Students
Childhood immunization record dates are required including MMR (2 dates), Polio (3-4 dates) and DPT (3-4 dates). Hint: Your high school should have a copy of your childhood immunization record on file.
Complete all of the Tuberculosis Screening questions in the immunization data section of page two of the medical history questionnaire form. If you answer “yes” to any of the tuberculosis screening questions, a Tuberculin Skin Test (Mantoux) or chest x-ray is required. You may request that the Health Center provide the testing shortly after your arrival at Heidelberg University. Indicate on the medical form (page two) that you would like Heidelberg personnel to administer the test. Cost: $5.
A Tetanus/Diphtheria (TDaP or TD Booster) is required. Date of your most recent vaccination must be within the past 10 years to fulfill this requirement (the year 2006 or later). Please indicate if you would like Heidelberg personnel to administer the DTaP booster when you arrive in August (page two). Cost: $50.
Varicella (Chicken Pox). No vaccine is necessary if you have had the disease. Vaccination is required if you have not had the disease, have not previously received the vaccination (2 doses) or have a negative varicella antibody titer. This vaccine is not available at the Heidelberg Health Center and must be administered at a medical facility of your choice.
Hepatitis B vaccination series (three injections-total cost $90 or $30/injection for students 19 years old and younger) are required. The cost for the series of three doses if you are over 19 years of age is $180 or $60/dose. Please indicate if you would like Heidelberg personnel to administer these vaccinations on page two of the medical questionnaire form.
Meningitis Vaccine (Menactra/Menomune) is strongly recommended. We advise you check with your local health department or medical provider to find the most economical source.
All Student-Athletes are required to complete the new student medical forms along with the Athlete forms. The Athlete forms are accessible via an online student portal in which they are to be completed electronically.
The Heidelberg University Athletics department requires mandatory on-campus physicals for all student-athletes. Student-athletes will be examined by our doctors so that they can receive the best medical attention available, should they be injured in competition. Athletes will be notified of these August dates by their coaches once the dates have been established. All Athlete Forms must be completed prior to receiving your on-campus pre-participation physical exam.
