All residential students of Cincinnati Christian University must submit a Student Health Form along with a copy of their vaccination records to the Student Life Office prior to moving into Cincinnati Christian University housing. The Ohio Revised Code (ORC) Section 1713.55 states that an institution of higher education shall not permit a student to reside in on-campus housing unless the student (or the student’s parent if the student is younger than 18 years of age) discloses whether the student has been vaccinated against meningococcal disease and hepatitis B by submitting a meningitis and hepatitis B vaccination status statement.
Cincinnati Christian University and Ohio law do not require vaccination of the student, nor is the institution required to provide or pay for vaccines. The law requires only disclosure of vaccination status of the student. More information regarding vaccination disclosure can be found on the Ohio Department of Health Website: http://www.odh.ohio.gov/odhprograms/dis/immunization/collegeimm.aspx. Any returning residential student without the vaccination disclosure on file will be unable to register for classes.
