Oklahoma law states that no minor child shall be admitted to any public or private school unless the parent or guardian presents to the school certification that the child has received the required immunizations. NWTC is not the monitoring facility for immunization records.

State Statute 70-3243 requires public/postsecondary educational institutions to provide information on the risks associated with meningococcal disease and the benefits of the vaccination. Meningitis is an inflammation of the membrane that surrounds the brain. Left untreated, it can cause seizures, coma, lasting disability and even death. Health professionals are recommending that students receive the meningitis vaccine. Additional information is available at your local county health department.

All adult health students must provide immunization records to meet the clinical facilities guidelines.
