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. In addition SF State students who are 18 years old or younger need to show proof of Hepatitis B immunization.

 

SF State students who are required to submit proof of immunizations will be notified by the Registrar's Office and will need to submit their "Proof of Immunization" form to the Registrar's Office by the stated deadline. Failure to provide proof of immunizations will result in a registration HOLD.

Recommended Immunizations

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 dormitories have received the meningitis (meningococcal) vaccine.

 

SF State also recommends 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.
