Georgia State University intends to provide a safe and healthy environment for all students. That is why, in compliance with the State Board of Regents immunization requirements, all students must show proof of being immunized. Getting vaccinated is an easy way to stay healthy all year round. Take the time to make sure that you have received all of the vaccinations you need. By making sure your vaccinations are up to date, you can help prevent harmful diseases from affecting you and your family.

The Student Health Clinic provides immunizations to all currently enrolled Georgia State University students. No appointments are necessary to receive immunizations. If needed, titers (blood tests) can be drawn to determine if a student is immune to some of the diseases.

  • Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR): Series of two shots
  • Varicella (chickenpox): Series of two shots one month apart
  • Tetanus and diphtheria (Td)
