Immunization Requirements
 
Immunizations offer safe and effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases.  The United States is experiencing re-emergence of these diseases, in part, due to factors such as non-immunized and under-immunized persons and global travel.  University health Services of the Pennsylvania State University strongly supports the use of vaccines to protect the health of our individual students and our campus community.
