  • Submit dates indicating receipt of 3 shots by pre-exposure protocol (day 0, 7, 21-28).


  • Submit a copy of medical records with the date and location/provider stamped or signed by an authorized healthcare agent indicating significant antibody titer by RFFIT testing (1:5).


  • Attend all THREE rabies clinics through Student Health Services during Fall Term to receive the full vaccination series.Since the series is difficult for some students to obtain prior to coming to OSU, the entrance requirement for rabies can be completed at these special clinic dates.

The opportunity to bill student insurance will be offered at the time of the vaccine clinic dates.
