Vaccination Records Available
Vaccination records are frequently needed for travel or employment! Paper records are shredded 3 years after graduation and the Health Center is NOT open June or July.
Handwashing with hot soap and water is the first step in reducing the transmission of germs!
Meningitis Vaccine Now the Law
On June 2002, the Governor of Pennsylvania signed into law the College and University Student Vaccination Act that requires all students living on campuses to have been vaccinated for meningitis. Eastern University will permit a signed waiver, should a student choose against the vaccination for moral or ethical reasons.
(This waiver will be available soon through this webpage. Until then, a copy can be obtained by calling the Health Center at 610-341-5955.)
Immunizations and TB Testing
Upon enrolling at Eastern University, all new students must show proof of immunizations and a current TB test completed within one year of the beginning of classes. All international students must have a tb test upon arrival at Eastern University. Completion of the Immunization form found under the Health Forms link on the Student Health Center website is required prior to moving in. Some other tests are mandated by federal, state and local laws and some internship, placement or other "academic experience" hosts require other tests as well.
