What vaccines are required?
All undergraduate students born on or after 1/1/57 need to provide proof of two MMRs—measles (Rubeola), German measles (Rubella)and mumps immunization. These vaccines are recommended for graduate students, but not required.
Hepatits B/ Meningitis
The state of Florida requires every student living in a residence hall to receive immunizations for meningitis and hepatitis B or to formally decline by signing a waiver acknowledging the risks of acquiring these infections.
All students arriving from a TB endemic area will be required to have a T Spot Blood Test within the first two weeks of school to determine if you have been exposed to Tuberculosis. This test is a much more specific test than the past TB Skin test, which resulted in many false positives due to different factors, including the influence of the BCG vaccine. Anyone with a positive result will be required to have a Chest X Ray.
