Immunization & Compliance
Why Do I Need To Get Immunized?
A healthy campus begins with you. The health of the individual can affect the health of the campus community. The Immunization Clinic is a walk-in clinic that administers vaccinations as a simple, safe, and effective way to prevent many diseases from spreading. To protect you and the campus community, state law dictates that all new students provide proof of compliance with required immunizations and screenings. The deadline to submit compliance for the Fall semester is September 13, 2013. Please note, that some immunizations require an order from a medical services provider. If so, schedule an appointment with a clinician or travel consultant to obtain the order prior to receiving the immunization.
Engemann Student Health Center strongly recommends that all incoming freshmen at USC receive the following vaccinations prior to their arrival on campus, or as soon as possible after arriving.
