About the Meningococcal Vaccination Requirement:

According to Texas law, on and after January 1, 2012, all first-time students, including transfer students, must present a certificate to the institution demonstrating they have been vaccinated against bacterial meningitis. A student may be exempt from the requirement if he or she presents a physician’s certificate indicating the vaccination would injure the health of the student or if he or she signs an affidavit declining the vaccination due to reasons of conscience including religious belief. The latter provision does not apply during a public health emergency, terrorist attack, hostile military or paramilitary action or extraordinary law enforcement emergency. The bill exempts a student who is enrolled only in online or other distance education courses or who is 22 years of age or older. New and former HPU students to whom this requirement applies will not be permitted to schedule classes until compliance with this law is demonstrated by submitting the necessary paperwork (i.e., shot record, state affidavit, or physician's certificate). The vaccination or a booster must have been received within five years of the student's first day of classes. Class Scheduling will be blocked until proof is received.

Acknowledgement Statement

To improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the health care system, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was designed in 1996 to establish national standards of privacy to protect health information. HIPAA limits the use and release of individual, identifiable, health information, gives patients the right to access their medical records, restricts most disclosure of health information to the minimum needed for the intended purpose, and establishes safeguards regarding disclosure of records for certain public responsibilities, such as public health, research, and law enforcement. Improper use or disclosures of patient information under this rule are subject to criminal and civil sanctions. I have read and acknowledge the Final Statement and I give authorization for release/disclosure of my health information as deemed necessary per Howard Payne University unless revoked in writing. If I feel my rights have been violated, I will contact the Assistant Vice President for Business and Human Resources at (325) 649-8012, Packer Administration Bldg. room 210.
