Virginia state law and George Mason University policy requires all students to be immunized according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Student Health Services is responsible for collecting and maintaining students’ immunization records.
October 1: Incoming Summer/Fall student deadline
March 1: Incoming Spring student deadline
Immunizations are due by close of business (4:30pm) on the day of the deadline. Immunization records not complete or turned in after the appropriate deadline will be subject to a $50 late fee changed and an account hold placed on the student’s Patriot Web account.
As a student registered for classes at Mason, you must be fully compliant with immunization requirements. Students can receive required immunizations with Student Health for a fee, your local health department or personal healthcare provider.
Students are strongly encouraged to meet requirements at home and submit the necessary immunization forms as soon as possible. Students should fill out Parts 1, 2, 3, 4 of the the Immunization Record Form. Accepted proof of immunization must be submitted for Hepatitis B, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella, Tetanus/Diphtheria, Meningococcal, and Tuberculosis.
How to Submit Immunization Records
Mail, fax, email*, or drop-off records and forms to the Immunization Office. Please include your G# on all pages. (Do not include your social security number).
After-hours there is a drop box next to the office in SUB I. To use the dropbox, place your records in an envelope, and clearly print your name and G# on all pages and the envelope.
All students are responsible for ensuring that their records are complete. To verify that your records are complete, email or stop by the Immunization Office. If records are incomplete after the appropriate deadline, you will be charged the late fee.
*Please note that email is not a secure form of communication.
All required vaccines are available by appointment at Student Health Services for a fee.
Answers to commonly asked questions about immunizations.
Immunization records due by March 1st.
All new incoming spring students must submit immunization records by the deadline. Records turned in after the deadline or records that are incomplete after the deadline will be charged a late fee and a hold will be placed on the student's account.
Past Due Immunization Records
If you have a hold and late fee, you must complete the immunizations and pay the late fee to Student Health Services to have your hold removed. The hold will be released usually by the end of that business day, if after 4:30 pm it will be processed the next business day.
Note: Do not include social security numbers on your immunization records.
