It is the law that young adults attending post-secondary schools in the State of Indiana be immunized against or show proof of immunity to certain vaccine preventable and communicable diseases (IC 20-12-71). Valparaiso University requires all full-time undergraduates and full-time law students and ALL international students to complete the Health Form. You will find links below for the Health Form. The Health Form must be completed by the first day of classes. If your completed Health Form is not submitted by the first day of classes you will be assessed a $50.00 fine. Students who do not turn in the completed Health Form within two weeks after classes begin will additionally have a hold placed on their academic account. The hold will prevent the student from accessing grades and registering for classes.
All Health Forms must be in English. The form must include a provider signature for immunizations or official immunization documentation may be attached to the Health Form. All students must provide proof of 2 MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and a current TD (tetanus, diphtheria). Tuberculosis testing is required of all International students and any domestic student who has lived or had extensive travel to a high prevalence country, including Africa, Asia, Philippines, Indonesia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Mexico, Portugal, Caribbean and the Middle East.
MMR - The first MMR must be given after 12 months of age. The second MMR must be given at least one month after the first dose.
TD - The TD must be given within the last 10 years. The TDap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccination is preferred.
You can not save information on the health form. If you want to submit the form electronically (email) you will need to print the form and scan it back to your computer.
