From your pediatrician or primary care provider, local health department or a local
Marion County Health Department offers all mandatory immunizations for no charge with
insurance. If you do not have insurance, it is $25.
You may submit an MMR and varicella titer to test immunity. A titer is a test that
is done by drawing a sample of blood. A provider at student health can write an order
for this and then you will need to take the order to the lab to get the test completed.
A negative test result indicates you are not immune and must receive the full vaccination
series. Those with no proof of the other required vaccinations must complete the full
vaccination series for each. Upload a document to the portal when you have started
the vaccination process and when you complete it.
West Virginia does not grant non-medical exemptions for immunizations. Non-medical
exemptions have been associated with increased occurrence of vaccine-preventable outbreaks
originating in and spread through schools.
West Virginia Medical Exemption information
Medical exception forms are available at student health and the form must be filled
out by the student’s primary care provider.
If you attend Fairmont State University in an all-virtual capacity, you may qualify
for an exemption from the immunization requirements by completing the Immunization
Exemption Request for Virtual Learners form and submitting it to Student Health Services
at email@example.com at least fourteen (14) calendar days prior to the start of classes.
Upload all required immunization documentation through your secure student health
portal, pyramed. You may access this through your Fairmont State student portal.
