200 students without immunizations warnedBy Robert Deckert
Although numbers this spring are down from fall semester for administrative withdrawals, students still face challenges regarding the proper filing of their immunization records.
"It’s a health issue,” University Registrar Sara Brackin said. “The reason the law was passed was to protect us all.”
Students who do not have a complete immunization record on file when classes begin have 30 days to obtain the required immunizations.
It was difficult to get my shot records because my doctor who had them died, Oxendine said.
Students need to be more attentive to admissions applications and know the requirements for school, Wiggins said.
Brackin said that the Registrar’s office first sends out letters, warning students of incomplete paperwork.
The next letter the Registrar’s office sends is the letter of noncompliance.
