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
“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
