Immunization Requirements for WWC

  1. You will need proof of at least 3 tetanus/diptheria shots. They could be DPT or Td shots. One of the tetanus shots must have been administered within the last 10 years or you must have a booster from within the last 10 years.
  2. You will need proof of 2 MMRs (Measles, Mumps and Rubella combination shot). Some people have gotten them as individual shots, but most of you had them as a combination shot. The first shot must have been on or after the day you turned one year old.
  3. You will need proof of 3 polio vaccines (IPV or OPV)
  4. If you were born after July 1, 1994, you will need proof of 3 Hepatitis B vaccines.
  5. This is NOT a vaccine, but you will need a Tuberculin (PPD) test (to test for Tuberculosis). It is required within 12 months of the first day of classes.

We highly recommend a few other vaccinations, but they are NOT mandatory.
