Required Immunizations


The USG Board of Regents and the University Immunization Policy requires that all students attending classes at any of Georgia’s public institutions, including Augusta University, must meet established immunization requirements. Standard processing time for all submitted documentation is 48 hours.

 

In addition, all students living in on-campus Housing (Oak Hall, Elm Hall, and University Village) must also provide proof of meningitis vaccination prior to “Move in Day” to include two doses of Meningococcal vaccine (MCV4, Menactra, Menveo) and preferably three doses of Meningitis B vaccine (Bexsero or Trumenba). Students may decline to receive vaccination, and are required to sign a waiver of liability; students under 18 years of age must have their parent or guardian sign the waiver of liability.  Meningitis Information.
