Certain immunizations are necessary for students to be protected while at college. Students should check their immunization histories and update any needed vaccines. All students should carry their immunization records with them while at college since they may need to show proof of immunization. See below for more information about recommended vaccinations and how to obtain them if needed.
Some immunization services are available to UW-Superior students through the Douglas County Health and Human Services Department. For more information, visit their website.
Wisconsin colleges and universities are required by state statute to provide all enrolled students each year with detailed information about Meningococcal disease and Hepatitis B and the availability and effectiveness of vaccines against these diseases. (See below for this information.) Colleges and universities must also ensure that each student living in a residence hall affirms that he or she has received this information, and if the student has been vaccinated against either diseases, provides the date(s) of vaccination(s).
For Students Living in Residence Halls
Please see the detailed information about Meningococcal disease and Hepatitis B and the availability and effectiveness of vaccines against these diseases below, as well as information about the local availability and cost of these vaccinations.
If you have not received these vaccinations, you are strongly urged to have them. If you need the dates of any vaccinations that you have received, you will need to contact the agency that administered the vaccine(s). If you receive either vaccine after the housing contract process, it is not necessary to submit the dates, but you should keep the dates for your own records. THE LAW DOES NOT REQUIRE THAT YOU RECEIVE THESE VACCINATIONS.
