I am a transfer student from another University System of Georgia school and showed proof of immunization requirements at my former college. Will my records automatically transfer over?
No. Transfer students will need to contact their former institution to obtain copies of their immunization records. An Authorization to Disclose form can be obtained and submitted to retrieve immunization records. Students who do not meet Perimeter College at Georgia State University immunization requirements will have to take necessary vaccines or show proof of immunity to comply with the vaccination policy.
At this time, the Student Health Clinics on Perimeter College at Georgia State University campuses do not accept any type of insurance. Students can check with their primary or in-network family doctor on using their health insurance to cover the cost of vaccines.
All requirements are the same except for varicella. However, all foreign-born students must be vaccinated against varicella or provide laboratory evidence of immunity regardless of date of birth.
Students should refer to waivers and exemptions to see if they qualify for any of the exemptions listed.
The purpose of this policy is to ensure that students are protected against communicable diseases that are preventable and to reduce the likelihood of an epidemic or threatened epidemic on a Georgia public college or university campus. Please review the University System of Georgia Board of Regents immunizations policy for further information.
Student Health Clinics will not be able to verify immunization data. Students' records will be incomplete and a hold will be placed on their student account, which will block them from registering for classes the following semester.
Will a hold be placed on my student account if I do not comply with the Perimeter College at Georgia State University immunization policy?
Yes. Students who are not in compliance with the Perimeter College at Georgia State University immunization policy will have a hold placed on their student account until they have met the requirements or submitted an applicable waiver or exemption.
Please allow five to seven business days for processing immunization information. Students who have questions should send an email to Student Health Clinics at Perimeter College which includes their name and student ID number.
