Pittsburg State University is committed to protecting the health and well-being of our students. Therefore, PSU has implemented an Immunization Compliance policy to ensure that students are educated about and receive vaccinations to prevent potentially serious and contagious diseases.

In accordance to Pittsburg State University’s Immunization Compliance policy, Bryant Student Health Center (BSHC) must receive evidence of the student’s compliance with the following immunizations.  In the absence of this evidence an enrollment hold will be applied and the student will be unable to enroll in subsequent semesters.

 

  • Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR):ALL newly enrolled freshman, transfer, graduate & international students born on or after January 1, 1957 must show proof of TWO MMR vaccinations at least 28 days apart.  These are typically received between one and five years of age.  History of the disease is not sufficient for compliance unless it is accompanied by documentation of a positive blood titer.
  • Meningitis:ALL newly enrolled PSU students living in university-owned group housing are required to be vaccinated for meningitis within the past five (5) years. If the vaccination was received greater than 5 years ago, a booster dose will be necessary.

 

Prior to the first day of classes, students must submit their immunization history using our Proof of Immunization Compliance form.   This form may be completed and signed by a medical provider in the paper format, OR you may attach an official copy of your immunization record from a medical office, high school immunization record, childhood immunization booklet, etc. to the completed form.  You should include your date of birth and seven digit PSU ID# on ALL the submitted forms.

 

       This information should then be submitted in one of these ways:

  • Turning it in at Pitt C.A.R.E.S.**/New Student Orientation, or
  • Faxing to: (620) 235-6135, or
  • Bringing to PSU Bryant Student Health Center upon campus arrival, or
  • Mailing to: Bryant Student Health Center, Pittsburg State University, 1701 South Broadway, Pittsburg, KS 66762.

If questions remain, please contact the Bryant Student Health Center at (620) 235-4452.

**Community Health Center of SE Kansas will be available to administer required vaccines if needed at the Bryant Student Health Center between noon and 4 pm during Pitt C.A.R.E.S. Please bring your insurance information with you.
