Required Examinations and Immunizations

To qualify for DEH limited-enrollment/restricted courses you will be required to have the following:


Examinations:
General physical examination by your medical doctor. Must be completed within the year preceding your first day of starting DEH limited-enrollment courses.
Eye examination: Safety glasses with permanent side shields are required; therefore, if you wear prescription eye glasses, you may want to speak with the optometrist regarding your options. Must be completed within the year preceding your first day of starting DEH limited-enrollment courses.
Dental examination and cleaning: If you do not have a dentist and would like to schedule an appointment in our dental hygiene clinic, please call 937/512-2548. Appointments are 3 hours each and may require more than one visit. Must be completed within the last 6 months preceding your first day of starting DEH limited-enrollment courses.

 

Immunizations:

Hepatitis B: vaccination or positive antibody titer (Anti-HBs)

The first injection must be on or prior to the first day of starting DEH limited-enrollment courses. The second injection is due 30 days after the first injection and the third is due five months after the second injection was completed. If you have already had the three injection series, please send in proof. If the injection was 10 years ago or more, you will need to have an antibody titer (Anti-HBs) completed. If any injections were significantly beyond the specified time frame, a titer is also recommended. If a titer is negative or the student waives the titer recommendation, evidence of physician counseling is required.

Influenza: recommend one dose of influenza vaccine annually
Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR): vaccination or positive antibody titers
Varicella (chicken pox): history of disease, positive antibody titer, or vaccination is required
PPD Skin Test: completed within six months prior to starting DEH limited-enrollment courses. A positive reaction requires documentation of physician evaluation.
Tetanus: within the past 10 years

An Immunization Form will be included with your notification of cohort eligibility to start limited-enrollment courses.

Please note the time restrictions on the examinations and immunizations.
If they are done too early, you will be required to repeat!
