Getting ready to go to college is a big change, with so much going on. Don't forget to make sure your kids are up-to-date on their shots before they head off to start the next chapter of their life.

Is your child up-to-date with recommended vaccines? Did you know some colleges

won’t allow your child to complete freshmen registration without a current vaccine

record? Vaccines protect your child and the community from serious illnesses. You can review your child’s immunization history in your MyChart account and arrange to get any missing vaccinations. The following are the most common vaccines colleges require –

  • ­Tetanus-Diphtheria (Td) or Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis (Tdap)
  • ­Pertussis (whooping cough) (Tdap)
  • ­Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR)
  • ­Hepatitis B (HBV)
  • ­Meningococcal (meningitis)
  • ­Varicella (chickenpox)
  • ­Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
