Students who don't submit an immunization self-report form will not be able to register for fall semester classes.
The chicken pox, meningitis, tetanus and hepatitis-b vaccines are highly recommended for students, and while immunizations are still optional no matter what a student discloses on their form, the University Physician hopes to educate students about the importance of vaccinations, and in the process, make it easier to identify those highest at risk for getting sick.
"In the event a disease spreads that can be prevented with an immunization, we can identify and notify those students to prevent them from getting sick and spreading the disease," Dr. Beth Alexander, University Physician.
The form is available online at www.immunization.msu.edu
