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 unimmunized 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.
Please refer to Immunization Compliance for All Incoming Students for more information.
