Flu Shots

Every fall semester, all nursing students will be required to obtain a flu shot for courses containing a clinical component.

Each student must upload a copy of their flu shot to ACEMAPP by the required deadline. There are no exceptions to this mandate. If documentation is not received by the deadline, the student will not be permitted to attend clinical and will be unsuccessful in the course.

As a health care provider and future nurse, it is the student’s responsibility to provide a safe environment for patients and a flu shot provides protection for both the nurse as well as the patient.


Do you need to stay up-to-date on immunizations but have a busy schedule? Please review the Immunization information to schedule an appointment with the Lorain County Health District.


All nursing students will be required to upload all health documents (i.e. Drug Test Release form, appropriate CPR card, Statement of Non-Conviction Form) into ACEMAPP. Please see the link under ‘Health Requirements’ for instructions on uploading documents in ACEMAPP.
