Board of Governors Policy 1.2.110
Revised and approved by the Board of Governors on December 13, 2002
The purpose of the immunization policy is to protect the health of the university community.
A. Measles Immunization Requirement. All on-campus students, faculty members and staff members born on or after January 1, 1957, must comply with the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunization policy, which requires two vaccines against measles and one against mumps and rubella. The first measles vaccine or combination MMR vaccine must have been given at age 12 months or later. A second vaccine for measles or MMR must have been administered at least one month after the first one. A copy of an immunization record documenting the vaccines is required.
B. Tuberculosis Screening. All on-campus students, faculty members and staff members must complete the tuberculosis screening questionnaire provided by the University Health Center. Health Services personnel will analyze the completed questionnaire and determine if the student, faculty member or staff member must provide evidence of a tuberculosis skin test within the last year. Persons with a history of positive tuberculosis skin tests must provide evidence of appropriate follow-up care, including chest X-ray results. Health services personnel will evaluate the follow up care for compliance with current Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations.
C. Study/Travel Abroad Screening Requirements. All students, faculty members and staff members participating in a university-sponsored study/travel abroad program must complete the tuberculosis screening questionnaire provided by the University Health Center upon completion of travel. Health services personnel will analyze the completed questionnaire and determine if the student, faculty member or staff member must have a tuberculosis skin test after completion of travel.
D. Non-Compliance. For students not complying with the policy, a hold will be placed on the next semester's enrollment until all requirements are met. For faculty and staff members not complying with the policy, either the employment process will not be completed or the university may suspend their employment until all requirements are met.
A. The University Health Center will maintain a tuberculosis screening questionnaire that is consistent with CDC guidelines. This questionnaire may change from time to time, as the CDC updates its recommendations.
B. All incoming freshmen and transfer students and new employees will complete the University of Central Missouri Mandatory Immunization Form and attach copies of appropriate medical documentation.
C. Health services staff will review the documentation to ensure requirements are met.
D. An immunization database will be maintained to track and document compliance with the policy.
