Student Care Immunization Recommendations

William Jessup University does not require undergraduate students to show proof of immunizations. However, we strongly recommend obtaining the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR); please note that two vaccines are required in a lifetime to complete immunization. We also recommend a Tuberculosis screening using one of the three options below:

  • Complete TB Screening Questionnaire, or
  • IGRA blood test (TB Gold or T Spot) or
  • TB skin test (PPD)

Other recommended vaccinations include:

  • Tetanus booster within the last 10 years (Tdap preferred)
  • Hepatitis B: Series of 3 shots
  • Meningitis: For incoming freshman and those living in the residence halls or in close contact, there are two types of meningitis vaccines to consider, since they cover different strains of meningitis
    • Serogroup B (Trumenba or Bexsero)
    • Serogroup A, C, W, Y (Menactra or Menveo)
