State Immunization Requirements for Enrolled Students

Indiana state law requires all new, regularly enrolled students attending residential campuses of Indiana public universities be immunized against Rubeola (10 day measles), Rubella (German measles), Mumps, Diphtheria, and Tetanus. This law requires the university to block the enrollment of any student who does not comply with immunization requirements. If your record is held for immunization noncompliance, registration for future courses can not be fully processed until the hold is cleared.

Incoming students over 18: MUST complete the immunization form through the patient portal found at myhealth.push.purdue.edu

Graduate Students: The grad school uploads their information differently from undergraduates. As a result, access to the online database may be delayed. We're recommending that grad students submit their immunization dates at the end of summer.

Incoming students under 18: You can access the form by clicking here: IMMUNIZATION HISTORY FORM

Indiana law does not require a physician to confirm dates of immunizations. Students over 18 or guardians of students under 18 may self-report immunization dates.

Exemptions

Requests for exemption to these requirements based on religious grounds must be made in advance and signed by the student.

A medical exemption will be granted upon receipt of a written statement from a healthcare provider indicating the nature and duration of the medical condition which contraindicates an immunization, along with the specific vaccine identified as detrimental to the student's health, or certifying pregnancy or suspected pregnancy. Medical exemptions expire when the medical condition(s) contraindicating immunization change in a manner which permits immunization.

In the event of an outbreak of any of the vaccine preventable diseases covered by this law on or near campus, students holding exemptions will be excluded from all campus activities, for their protection, until the outbreak is declared to be over. Submit immunization documentation to
