Immunization Recommendations

Although UW-Stout does not have a specific immunization requirement, it is important that all students are up to date on their vaccinations. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices has made the following immunization recommendations for young adults. Review your student's immunization record and arrange to get any missing vaccinations before coming to campus. Vaccinations are available from your local clinic or health department. More information at CDC

1. Measles, Mumps, Rubella:  
All entering college students born after 1957 should have had 2 doses of this vaccination. The first dose of the MMR given after 1st birthday. 


2. Tetanus-Diphtheria (Td) or Tetanus-Diptheria-Pertussis (Tda): 
After the initial series, a booster is needed every ten years. The most recent booster should be the Tda vaccine, which includes protection against pertussis.


3. Varicella: 
If your student has not had chicken pox as a child, this vaccination is recommended (2 injections 1 month apart).


4. Meningitis: 
Neisseria Meningitides causes a rare but severe and frequently fatal disease call Meningitis. While this disease is no more common in college students than in the general population (about 1 in 100,000 students), it is 5 times more common in freshmen that live in residence halls (1 in 20,000 students). While the risk of contracting this disease is low, it can be rapidly fatal if contracted. This vaccine is recommended if your student will be a freshman living in the residence halls. 


5. Hepatitis B 
3 shot series required for protection. This vaccine is recommended for all young adults prior to entering college.


6. Hepatitis A
Vaccination is recommended for all children, for travelers to certain countries, and for people at high risk of infection with the virus. Two shot series required for protection. The disease is spread primarily through food or water contaminated by stool from an infected person. 


7. Human Papillomavirus (HPV): 
Three shot series vaccine recommended for all women ages 11-26 and men ages 11-21.

Flu Shots

Yearly flu vaccination should begin in September or as soon as vaccine is available and continue throughout the influenza season. Everyone should get the flu vaccine each flu season. It is especially important that anyone with respiratory or other medical conditions that could compromise their ability to fight infection get the flu shot each year. College students at high risk of complications from the flu are students who have asthma, diabetes, certain immunodeficiency, and frequently have contact with a high-risk individual.

Cost and availability information will be made known through the Student Health Services website and email notification.
