Immunization Requirements

    

University Immunization Policy

All new undergraduate students must fulfill immunization verification requirements through Med+Proctor and submit their Health History form on their New Hatter’s checklist before registering for classes. This includes proof of immunity to measles, mumps and rubella, also known as MMR vaccine. 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. 

The immunization verification process is now handled through our partnership with Med+Proctor. Please use the following instructions to submit the proper immunization forms and information:

Waivers for Hepatitis B and Meningitis

Waivers are available on the Med+Proctor site. If a vaccine-preventable disease occurs on campus, students who have not been vaccinated or do not have immunity verified by lab test may be excluded from attending classes or other campus activities.

Medical Exemption

A formal Medical Exemption may be completed for persons with certain medical conditions and/or contraindications (permanent or temporary) to certain vaccines. A letter from the student's medical provider (such as a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant) must be submitted to Med+Proctor along with the General Exemption signed form.

Beliefs/Personal Tenets

If your personal religious beliefs or tenets dictate that you do not receive the required immunizations for enrollment at Stetson University, you may request an exemption by filling out the General Exemption form and attach the required documentation listed on the form.

Please note that students with immunization waivers and/or exemptions on file may be excluded from attending classes or other campus activities if an outbreak of the specific vaccine-preventable disease occurs on campus.

COVID-19 Vaccination

Stetson Health Service strongly encourages COVID-19 vaccines and boosters 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
