or blood testing for TB infection within 1 year of CSU entry.  *Higher risk include
travel to or living in South and Central America,  Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East; prior positive TB test;  or exposure to someone with active TB disease.

We encourage you to start your immunization process as early as possible, as some vaccines require multiple doses and may take six months to complete. Schedule and complete any outstanding vaccines/titers with your medical provider since some vaccines are not avaialble at SHCS, or costs to getting vaccinated may be more at SHCS than with your medical provider. 

IF YOU HAVE BEEN VACCINATED FOR COVID-19 WITHIN THE LAST TWO WEEKS, WE CANNOT ADMINISTER ANY VACCINES UNTIL AFTER THE TWO WEEKS IS OVER.


Students have one semester to comply or they will not be permitted to register for a second semester. Registration holds are placed if proof of immunization has not been submitted to SHCS prior to priority registration date. If you would like assistance with submitting your immunizations and completing the TB screening, please all SHCS at
