Disclosure of Meningitis and Hepatitis B Status (required by Ohio law)
The State of Ohio requires all institutions of higher education to keep a Meningococcal and Hepatitis B Vaccination Status Form on file for each student living in the residence halls. The law does not require students to be vaccinated against meningitis and/or hepatitis B. The intent of the law is to educate young adults on the risks of meningococcal disease and hepatitis B and to encourage prevention by vaccination. Students will not be permitted to stay in the residence halls without completing this form. Complete the form through the UMS Patient Portal, and read the law online.
