Full-time Tennessee college students:
- Measles, Mumps, Rubella - (2 doses of each, normally given together as MMR): if born on or after January 1, 1957 only.
- Varicella (Chicken Pox) - (2 doses or credible history of disease): if born on or after January 1, 1980 only.
- Hepatitis B (HBV) – only for health science students expected to have patient contact (before patient contact begins).
- Meningococcal - At a minimum of 1 dose given at 16 years of age or greater if under 22 years of age and living in on-campus housing.
- TB - All students must show evidence of having either a "Low Risk" for carrying TB by filling out the "Low Risk" questionnaire, or proof of no disease by negative TB skin test (<15mm) or Negative Chest X-Ray. The "Low Risk" assessment questionnaire can be found when you log onto your Med+Proctor account.
Minimum ages or dose intervals - Tennessee follows published CDC guidelines. For vaccines with critical minimum age requirements (e.g., MMR, varicella) or minimum dose intervals, doses are considered valid if given up to 4 days before the minimum age or dose interval. Doses administered more than 4 days early are considered invalid and should be repeated as recommended.
Alternative proof of immunity for certain diseases - A positive serology (year of test documented) is acceptable as an alternative to immunization for measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B or varicella. For varicella, documentation of provider diagnosed varicella (Chicken Pox) or provider-verified credible history of disease given by a parent or guardian also is acceptable. By documenting a history of disease, the provider is asserting that he or she is convinced that the child has had chickenpox.
All students must show evidence of tuberculosis skin screening or complete a Low Risk TB assessment which is available to fill out when you logon to your MedProctor account.
