Safeguarding the health of students and the community.

Immunizations offer safe, effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. This is especially true for students living in group housing on or off campus.

By reducing cases and outbreaks of significant infectious diseases, Oregon State University’s required immunizations help students stay in class and achieve their academic goals.

Still need your required vaccines?

We're happy to help! Call the Immunization Office (541-737-7573) to schedule an appointment to get your required immunizations.

Services are available at the Health Center, Monday-Friday, by appointment.

Questions? Call the Immunization Helpline at 541-737-7573 or send us an email.

Information sessions for incoming 2024 students & families


Immunization records should be submitted via the Patient Portal.

Immunization records can also be submitted via fax and mail:

  • FAX to: 541-737-9665
  • Mail to: Immunization Coordinator 
    850 SW 26th St. 
    Corvallis, OR 97331

If you have not been immunized but are immune based on blood tests or having had the diseases, you must submit official documentation from your medical provider (personal physician, pediatrician or county health department) that you had the respective disease(s) or blood test results

Requesting records

If you need to request records from a doctor or school, feel free to use this Authorization Form to do so.

You may complete this form and submit it directly to your health care provider, which will give them permission to send the information to Student Health Services directly.

Providing proof of immunity

If you are unable to provide proof of immunity to any or all of these diseases, you will be required to have either a blood test to measure your immunity (called a titer), and/or have the immunizations.

Student Health Services can perform blood titers and administer the immunizations. Since titers can be very expensive and they may demonstrate your need to be immunized anyway, it is recommended that you simply take the immunizations.

It is safe to have the immunizations even if you are already immune.


hold will be placed on the registration process of non-compliant students attempting to register for their second term at OSU.

High-risk countries

Students from countries identified as high TB risk are required to complete an IGRA TB lab test upon arrival at Oregon State.

Exempt countries

All students must fill out the TB questionnaire on the Patient Portal. Students from exempt countries who answer "yes" to any questions on the TB questionnaire are required to complete an IGRA TB lab test as well.

How the TB testing works

All incoming students are required to complete TB screening. Screening is conducted through a TB questionnaire that identifies risk factors for TB infection and disease. The TB questionnaire form can be completed on the Medical Clearances tab of the Patient Portal. Any student that answers yes to one or more questions on the TB questionnaire is required to complete an IGRA TB lab test.

Students will have until the middle of their first term at OSU to complete the TB questionnaire and get tested (if indicated). Students who do not complete this requirement will have a registration hold placed on their account. 

Medical exemptions

Immunization requirements may be waived for students with qualifying medical conditions such as pregnancy, diseases which lower resistance to infection, or use of certain medications.

Non-medical exemptions

Non-medical exemptions may be given for those with beliefs, practices or ethical values which prohibit immunizations. Be aware that you may be removed from classes if an outbreak occurs and you are not vaccinated against the disease.
