Health Forms and Immunizations
Please complete your Report of Medical History and Immunization Record Online at http://www.stolaf.edu/admitted no later than July 15th. Your immunization record needs to be reviewed prior to matriculation per MN law.
Students who do not provide the required immunization information will not be allowed to register for fall classes. If you are having difficulty finding documentation of your immunizations, it might help to check with your current high school or your health care clinic.
Your Report of Medical History will be reviewed only when care is established in Health Service during an office visit.
A physical is not required for matriculation, but is suggested for all students before arrival on campus. Having a physical allows your health care provider an opportunity to update any needed immunizations, refill medications, and assess health needs. Physicals are not available on campus.
If you have questions about these forms or other Health related matters at St. Olaf College, please contact the Health Service directly at 507-786-3063. To contact Health Service during the summer, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
When you enroll in college in Minnesota, you may need to show that you’ve been vaccinated against five major vaccine-preventable diseases: measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, and diphtheria. The Minnesota College Immunization Law applies to anyone who was born after 1956. However, students who graduated from a Minnesota high school in 1997 or later are exempt from these requirements under the law (because they will already have met them as a high school student), although some colleges may require proof of immunizations from these students too. Minnesota laws also require post-secondary schools to provide students with information on the transmission, treatment, and prevention of hepatitis A, B, C, and meningococcal disease.
TD/Tdap (tetanus booster) must have been given within the past 10 years. Please obtain current booster if needed.
If you received a meningococcal vaccine dose before age 16, you should get a booster before you go to college.Several national groups, including the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommend that all children ages 11 through 12 years receive meningococcal vaccine as part of their preteen health care visit, followed by a booster dose at age 16 years. Vaccination is also recommended for all adolescents ages 13 through 18 years who did not receive a dose at age 11-12 years.
We encourage all students to get their flu shot before arrival to campus in the fall, but a flu shot clinic will be on campus in the fall for a fee.
