Required ImmunizationsThe North Dakota University System policy requires all students to be vaccinated with 2 doses of measles, mumps, and rubella. Effective Fall of 2012 - All newly admitted students, ages 21 and younger residing in campus housing, must provide documentation of immunity against meningococcal disease. One dose must have been given after the 16th birthday to be valid. Students are also required to complete the TB (Tuberculosis) Screening form. Students have until the beginning of their second semester at the University to provide proof of such immunization or you will not be allowed to register. If you have not met these immunization requirements, you may do so at Student Health Services. Submit completed forms to Student Health Services through mail, fax (701-777-4835) or email.
• Distance learning students and other students with limited contact with the on-campus population
• Immunization contraindicated by medical condition
• Student has had one immunization and agrees to have second immunization within one month
• A student’s beliefs preclude participation in an immunization program
In addition to MMR, there is a comprehensive menu of vaccines available at Student Health Services, almost always at a reduced fee. While some vaccines are part of the basic protocol for general health, others are more specific for other purposes, such as foreign travel.
The following vaccines are available:
Influenza (flu) shots - (Available by appointment or Influenza Vaccine Outreach Clinics)
Gardasil (HPV 4 )
Twinrix (combination of Hepatitis A and B)
Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis)
Mantoux (Tuberculosis test)
Chicken Pox (Varicella)
*Effective Fall of 2012 - All newly admitted students, ages 21 and younger residing in campus housing, must provide documentation of immunity against meningococcal disease. One dose must have been given after the 16th birthday to be valid.
All vaccinations are done by appointment at Student Health Services. It is highly recommended that persons who need vaccines for foreign travel protection contact Student Health Services for a consultation to determine their travel needs 2-3 months prior to departure date.
Currently enrolled students and staff/employees of UND are eligible for foreign travel advice and vaccine administration. A modest consultation fee will be charged.
Anyone who is traveling to another country should be aware of the potential health risks associated with their travel. A travel consultation provides valuable, individualized information on recommended immunizations and tips on how to reduce your risk of injury or illnesses that are specific to the area you will be visiting.
Student Health Services can also administer the recommended vaccines along with providing safety and disease avoiding tips relative to your itinerary.
Consultations take about 1½ hours and are available throughout the year by appointment to students only for a minimal fee.
Please schedule a consultation at least 8 weeks prior to your departure date for the following reasons:
- Several vaccines require sequential spacing of the doses in a series to provide the optimum level of immunity and protection
- Some vaccines must be completed within a specific time span prior to travel, both for the traveler's protection and to fulfill legal requirements at ports of entry
- If medications are needed, for malaria for example, several doses must be taken prior to the departure date to provide the full therapeutic effect
