Sharing the importance of immunizations with incoming students

Why Immunizations are Important:
Diseases like meningitis, measles and tuberculosis are still being spread in the U.S.; immunizations and testing protect our students from the terrible side effects of these diseases, as well as death. For more information about the importance of immunizations for college students and for the Immunization Record Form, visit www.sa.sc.edu/shs/immunizations.

Until students turn in their complete immunization records, they will not be allowed to move in to their residence hall in the fall. Their classes will also be dropped on the first day of class if the records are not received. Students can receive immunizations at the Thomson Student Health Center at a minimal cost.

For Faculty/Staff:
We are sharing information about the importance of immunizations and self care with incoming and current students and their families: www.sa.sc.edu/shs/immunizations. Please help us to keep students safe and healthy – if you see a student coming to class ill, recommend they visit the Thomson Student Health Center to see one of our providers. Visits with our providers are included in the student health fee they pay each semester. If you’re ever concerned about the wellbeing of a student, please contact the Counseling & Human Development Center: http://www.sa.sc.edu/shs/chdc/services/cci/.
