South Dakota legislation requires any student born after 1957 entering a post-secondary education institution in South Dakota for the first time shall present certification from a licensed physician that the student has received or is in the process of receiving the required two doses of immunization against Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) or has the presence of an immune antibody titer against MMR. Students who fail to provide the required, signed proof of immunization, or file an exemption for religious or medical reasons, within 45 days from the beginning of the semester shall not be permitted to continue to attend classes until in compliance.

All Southeast Tech students are required to provide proof of two properly administered MMR immunizations. Students completing coursework entirely online are not required to provide immunization documentation. The South Dakota Department of Health also recommends immunizations for tetanus, diphtheria, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, varicella and meningitis, as well as a tuberculin test for all students, although these immunizations are not required.

Exemptions to the MMR requirement will be considered if there is a medical contraindication or religious exemption. Both medical and religious exemption forms must be completed on myTech.

Vet Tech Immunizations

Veterinary Technician 

Veterinary Technician students are required to provide proof of immunization for the following diseases:

  • Tetanus: A current Tetanus toxoid within the last seven (7) years. If a student’s vaccine expires while in the program, it is the student’s responsibility to get a booster.
  • Rabies Vaccine Required: To align with American Veterinary Medical Association requirements, all students accepted into Southeast Tech’s Veterinary Technician program must be vaccinated against rabies. The college will cover the cost of your rabies vaccine, and the first shot will be administered in the fall semester after classes start. The rabies pre-exposure vaccination consists of two (2) doses of inactivated rabies vaccine administered intramuscularly in the deltoid regions on days 0 and 7 for vaccination. Once the date is determined, no make-up dates will be scheduled. If you miss one of the shot clinics, you will be responsible for covering the cost of your rabies vaccination. If you refuse to be vaccinated against rabies, you cannot persist in the Vet Tech program. Also, STC will not reimburse you if you choose to get the rabies vaccination on your own.

See additional details in the Veterinary Technician Handbook
