Immunization Requirements

University Immunization Policy

All undergraduate students must provide a completed immunization form that includes proof of immunity to measles, mumps and rubella, also known as MMR vaccine, before registering for classes. In addition, residential students are required to have the hepatitis B series and meningitis ACWY immunizations. The meningitis vaccine must have been given on or after the 16th birthday or within 4 years prior to arriving at Stetson University. For hepatitis B or meningitis, a waiver may be signed stating the student understands the disease and the availability of the vaccine but has opted not to be vaccinated. This waiver can be found on page two of the immunization form.

If a student only has a waiver and there is a reported case or cases of the disease, the student may be restricted from classes or campus.

All completed immunization forms should be submitted to Stetson Health Service via one of the following methods:

  • Mail: Stetson Health Service, 421 N. Woodland Blvd., Unit 8415, DeLand, FL 32723
  • Fax: 386-822-8152

COVID-19 Vaccination

Stetson’s Safer Campus Task Force strongly encourages COVID-19 vaccines to protect yourself, your family and the community. These vaccines teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Currently, COVID-19 vaccinations are highly recommended for all Stetson community members. If you already had COVID-19 infection in the past, it is still recommended that you get vaccinated! Find out more about COVID-19 vaccines

Why Get Vaccinated?

Once you are fully vaccinated (two weeks after the second dose in a two-dose series, or two weeks after the one-dose vaccine), you…

  • do not need to quarantine if exposed to someone positive for COVID-19 (if you have no symptoms).
  • do not need to regularly test (even athletes and high-risk groups).
  • do not need to quarantine upon returning to the U.S after travel.
  • will be exempt from mandatory gateway testing.
  • will enable Stetson to open up more and more options!
