Required Immunizations

COVID-19 (fall 2021): In anticipation of an in-person fall 2021 semester, Cabrini University is requiring all faculty, staff, and students to be fully vaccinated by August 15, 2021. As a reminder, full vaccination is achieved two weeks after the final injection of the vaccine—that is, two weeks after the second injection of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after receiving a single-injection vaccine. This means you should receive the final dose of your vaccination by August 1.

Please see cabrini.edu/COVIDvax for additional details. 

Hepatitis B: Three doses are required.

Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR): Two doses are required. 

  • Dose one of MMR must be administered after the first birthday, and the second given a minimum of four weeks later.
  • A blood test showing immunity is also acceptable.
  • Disease history confirmed by doctor's record is acceptable for measles and mumps only, history of rubella is not acceptable.
  • Students born before 1957 are exempted from this requirement.

Varicella (Chicken Pox): Two doses of chicken pox vaccine are required at least one month apart.

  • Positive immune titer verifying immunity or history of disease are acceptable.

Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis: Incoming students whose last Td (Tetanus-Diphtheria) immunization was more than five years ago must receive a booster with Tdap (Tetanus Toxoid, Reduced Diphtheria Toxoid, and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine).

  • Tdap is strongly recommended for students whose last Td booster was more than two years ago if they have a history of pulmonary disease (including asthma).

Meningococcal: One dose of Meningococcal vaccine (covering serogroups A,C,Y, and W-135) is required for all incoming undergraduate students living in campus housing.

  • Revaccination is required after five years with continued risk.
  • This requirement may be met through signed waiver.

Meningococcal Group B Vaccine Series

Tuberculosis: In accordance with recommendations from both the American College Health Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Cabrini Health Services performs targeted tuberculosis (TB) testing.

  • Under these guidelines, TB testing is required of students who are more likely to be exposed to TB or to develop active infection if exposed.
  • Information from health care providers on immunization record determines whether TB testing will be required.

  Students will be required to have a TB skin test (also known as a PPD or Mantoux) if they:

  • have been exposed to someone with active TB
