All students who are enrolled at San Diego State University are required to provide proof of the following immunizations:
- Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR): Two doses with first dose on or after first birthday OR positive titer (laboratory evidence of immunity to disease; see FAQ #4).
- Varicella (chickenpox): Two doses with first dose on or after first birthday OR positive titer. History of contracting the disease does not meet compliance.
- Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap): One dose after age 7.
- Meningococcal conjugate (serogroups A, C, Y, & W‐135): At least one dose at age 16 or older for students up to age 23.
- Meningococcal B (Meningitis B): Students ages 16-23 must complete the series, which may be two or three doses depending on the brand of the vaccine.
- Hepatitis B (Hep B): Students ages 18 and younger must complete the series. Based on type of vaccine, the series is either two or three doses (CA Health & Safety Code, Sec. 120390.5).
- Tuberculosis (TB) risk assessment: All incoming students must complete a tuberculosis risk assessment questionnaire. Incoming students who are at higher risk for TB infection, as determined by the screening questions, should undergo testing for TB infection within one year of SDSU entry. The TB risk assessment is found under the Forms tab in HealtheConnect.
CSU VACCINATION REQUIREMENT
On April 22, the California State University system and University of California shared in a joint announcement that students, faculty and staff will be required to have a COVID-19 vaccine to be able to access campus facilities this fall.
The CSU, of which SDSU is part, indicated two important conditions for the requirement to be implemented: The requirement is contingent upon full approval of one or more vaccines by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA), and adequate availability of fully approved vaccines.
Additional information and guidance, including exceptions that will be offered for students, faculty and staff, is forthcoming and will be shared here.
