Orientation: Health and Immunization
Student Insurance, Health, and Immunization Requirements
Seaver students must submit the on-line waiver even if they have submitted their insurance to another University department. See, http://community.pepperdine.edu/healthcenter/insurance/, for the waiver submission information. All Seaver students are required to upload a copy of their Health History Form and Immunizations record to the Student Health Center medical site by January 4, 2018. Please see Message From the Student Health Center, http://seaver.pepperdine.edu/newstudents/healthcenter/letter.htm, for complete instructions on submission. You will not be able to make any class changes (transfer students will not be able to register for classes) until your immunizations are up to date, and uploaded to the Student Health Center medical system. Immunizations required for enrollment include: Tetanus/Diphtheria (booster within 10 years - most doctors are now administering T-dap which includes Pertussis vaccine); M.M.R.—Measles, Mumps and Rubella (two doses required; first dose 12-15 months on or after first birthday, second dose at least one month after first dose. Also required is the 3 dose Hepatitis B vaccine, and a meningitis booster (menactra) received at or after age 16. Consult a physician about being vaccinated against these potentially fatal diseases. For more information regarding these requirements and recommendations, please call the Student Health Center (310) 506-4316 – prompt 3.
