Do you know the State of North Carolina requires you to submit your immunization record as acondition of your enrollment in the University? The required immunizations for North Carolina are 2 doses of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), these are childhood immunizations which last a lifetime, three doses of Hepatitis B Vaccine (for students born after July 1, 1994) and a tetanus or tdap within the last ten years. These are the only immunizations required by the State of North Carolina. Student Health and Counseling Services requires that all students complete a Report of Medical History Form. This form can be downloaded from the Student Health website. Please visit www.nccu.edu; type “Health History Form” in the search box; select the entry “A Division of Student Affairs Student Health and Counseling Services”. SHCS request that you send your complete immunization record along with your report of medical history form as soon as possible.
If you need a copy of your immunization record it can usually be obtained from your doctor, the health department in your county or your high school transcript. You can mail (Student Health and Counseling Services, POB 19491, Durham, NC 27707) fax (919-530-7969) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) your forms and records.
Why are we requesting this information early? We need to have your complete immunization record before you attend your “Eagle Institute Session” so that you will be allowed to register for your Fall 2012 classes. You will not be allowed to register unless we have a complete immunization record on file for you. Once we receive the completed immunization record and your report of medical history form you will have a full clearance from SHCS.
