Meningococcal and Hepatitis B Vaccinations

 According to The Ohio Revised Code Section 1713.55, all students who live on campus must disclose whether they have been vaccinated against Meningococcal Disease and Hepatitis B.

Please note that this law does not require vaccinations of the student. It only requires disclosure of vaccine status. All new students will provide that information on their medical history forms.

For students who choose to be vaccinated, vaccines will be available in the Health Center. Vaccination recommendations made by the State of Ohio Department of Health can be found by visiting Recommended Vaccines for College.  For students choosing to be exempt from vaccination requirements because of religious or medical reasons can exercise that right by completing the State of Ohio Legal Immunization Exemption Per Ohio Statute 3313.671 form. There is a charge for each vaccination (note that the Hepatitis B vaccination is a series of three injections). Please contact Health Services, for pricing and availability at 330.490.7030 or via e-mail at healthservices@walsh.edu.

If you have questions about the housing assignment process, please contact the Director of Residence Life at reslife@walsh.edu (please note that Residence Life can clarify the expectations with regards to information disclosure but are unable to answer specific questions about either Meningococcal Disease and/or Hepatitis B). If you have questions about Meningococcal Disease and/or Hepatitis B, please contact Health Services at healthservices@walsh.edu or visit the Centers for Disease Control website.
