Important Immunization Information New for Fall 2003
Every year, college students across the country face serious health consequences caused by Hepatitis B and meningococcal meningitis. In an effort to better inform Tennessee college students of those health risks, the Tennessee General Assembly requires colleges to provide educational material regarding vaccinations against these ailments.

This means some changes for students living on campus beginning fall, 2003. Prior to check in to UTC housing, resident students must provide proof of immunization against Hepatitis B and meningococcal meningitis or sign a waiver choosing not to be immunized.

All students who will live in University housing this fall will be receiving information by U.S. Mail and email about the risks of meningococcal meningitis infection.

“If they refuse immunization, the waiver states that the University is not held responsible. If a student is under 18 years old, their parents must sign the papers for refusal of immunization,” UTC Housing Director Stephen Hood said.

All students must provide proof of having been immunized with two measles (MMR) vaccinations since age 12 months if the student was born after 1956.

For more information about immunizations, contact UTC Student Health.
