Health Professional Students
Student Life Student Health Services (SLSHS) works with many of the University health professional schools to complete and document student vaccination requirements.
All health professional students are expected to meet both The Ohio State University and program requirements.
Vaccination requirements vary for each program, however often include:
- Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR)
- Varicella (Chicken Pox)
- Hepatitis B
- TDAP (Tetanus)
A titer verifies antibody levels, ensuring protection against disease. Insufficient levels may require booster vaccination.
