Required Immunizations

SF State immunization policy requires that all students, except those who were enrolled in a California public school for the 7th grade or higher on or after July 1, 1999, provide proof of immunization against Measles, Mumps and Rubella before being allowed to register for classes. In addition SF State students who are 18 years old or younger need to show proof of Hepatitis B immunization before registering for the first semester of classes.

 

Prospective SF State students need to send their "Proof of Immunization" form to the Registrar's Office before registration. Not turning in your form will result in a registration hold and you will not be able to register for classes.

Recommended Immunizaitons

Student Health Services and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practicies (ACIP) recommend that students stay up-to-date on their vaccinations, and that students living in dormortories received the meningitis (meningoccoal) vaccine.

 

Each Fall, Student Health Services and SF State Residential Life offer a vaccination clinic for meningitis on move-in day for freshman living in the residential halls.

 

However, we recommend that you consider vaccination against meningitis (meningococcal) disease and chickenpox (varicella) (if you have never had the disease and/or have not been immunized against it) prior to arriving on campus. Please contact your primary care provider to make the appropriate arrangements.
