Pre-Admission Immunizations

What are the pre-entrance requirements for students?

The completed health record must include: medical history, a physical by a health care provider, the following immunizations: Tet/Diph, MMR (2 after one year of age) and polio vaccine (four dates required) and a TB skin test (Mantoux) within 12 months of arriving on campus, a hepatitis B vaccine series (recommended) and a meningitis vaccine (recommended, available at Health Center after September 15). Information will be sent to parents before classes start.

If I can't get the needed immunizations, can I get them at the Health Center?

Yes, for a fee, but it is required to get them before school starts.


If I am an athlete, do I still need a pre-entrance physical even though I'll get a sports physical?

Yes, Otterbein records must be complete before sports participation can occur.


If I have other questions, who can I call?

Call or email Lee Ann Bowers in the Health Center at (614) 823-1345 or fax (614) 823-1786.
