In addition to the measles, mumps, and rubella immunizations, the American College Health Association (ACHA) strongly recommends that students be vaccinated against tetanus, pertussis, diphtheria, polio, varicella, hepatitis B, and meningitis. However, students who arrive without proof of full immunization can be vaccinated at the Health Center.
