Incoming students include:
MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) – Two doses are required. The first MMR must be given on or after 12 months of age. The second MMR must be given at least 28 days after the first dose. A positive MMR titer will be accepted in lieu of this vaccination series if no records are available.
Tdap/Td (tetanus, diphtheria) – The Tdap or Td must be given within the last 10 years. The Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) vaccination is preferred.
Meningococcal (MenACWY/Menactra) – Maryland law requires enrolled students in a Maryland institution of higher education who reside in on-campus housing be vaccinated against meningococcal disease OR a waiver must be signed. A second dose must be given after age 16 or within the past 3 years.
Influenza – As flu season begins after the start of the semester, this immunization isn’t due until November 1. It is recommended that you get this vaccine in October annually. Our School of Pharmacy holds an on-campus flu vaccination each year.
COVID 19 - All students coming or returning to campus are required to have their COVID-19 vaccination(s). This includes all residential and commuter students, as well as Elkridge and undergraduate and graduate students participating in required professional program clinicals, practicums, internships. Exceptions will be granted only for documented medical and religious reasons- see University COVID-19 Waiver Form (.docx).
Students may file for an exemption for an immunization, but must still complete the remaining requirements and their Med+Proctor Profile. Students who are granted an exemption must submit all necessary documentation required for either a medical or religious exemption. Medical exemptions must be supported with paperwork signed by a medical provider.
Please note that in the event of an outbreak of a vaccine-preventable communicable disease on campus, students with exemptions will be required to leave campus until it is deemed safe for them to return by the City Department in conjunction with the Office of Health Services.
Proof of required immunizations must be submitted and have a verified status by the following deadlines:
