Flu Shots

All CHAD majors are required to complete CHAD 496: Observation and Assessment Lab at the Center for Children and Families (CCF on campus).  CHAD majors must complete the backgound check and immunization requirements no more than one year and no later than 3 weeks from the start of the semester in which they take the CHAD 496 course. 

ALL DOCUMENTATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THE STUDENT TO THE CCF.  THE PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT MAY NOT/WILL NOT TAKE THE DOCUMENTATION AS PER CHANCELLOR'S OFFICE GUIDELINES.

ALL center/site students enrolled in CHAD 496 and/or conducting research at the Center for Children and Families need to have immunization documentation in their files indicating they have received a current flu vaccination or a signed declination of the flu vaccine form.

For the flu vaccination specifically, students need to provide proof of flu immunization (or an exemption).

  • Students are given the option to decline the flu vaccine by filling out a declaration stating that he or she is declining the vaccination.
  • For students who do not decline the flu vaccine, flu vaccines must be obtained between August 1 and December 1 each year.  Students taking CHAD 496 in fall should have the current flu vaccine; students taking CHAD 496 in the spring should have had the flu vaccine the previous fall.  If the student has not had the flu vaccine, he/she will need to complete the vaccine declination form.

Students must make arrangements to have all required immunizations by the deadline for the semester in which they will enrolled in CHAD 496 at the CCF.  

The deadline for Fall 2018 is August 6, 2018 at 4:00PM and the deadline for Spring 2019 is January 3, 2019 at 4:00PM.  If students fail to provide copies of these documents to the CCF by this time they will be dropped from the CHAD 496 course.
