Medical Entrance Compliance
Penn State’s Health Policy requires that you provide documentation of appropriate immunizations.
Vaccination information: Immunization Requirements
Immunizations offer safe and effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. The United States is experiencing re-emergence of these diseases, in part due to factors such as non-immunized and under-immunized persons and global travel. University Health Services of the Pennsylvania State University strongly supports the use of vaccines to protect the health of our individual students and our campus community.
The immunization form is the only Health Services form that New Kensington students are required to complete. The website location to do this is studentaffairs.psu.edu/health/immunizations/. Click on "submit your immunizations online at myUHS," which can be found at the end of the first paragraph. Students must also complete the online health history form through myUHS.
