Student Health Services is responsible for collecting and maintaining students’ immunization records. Virginia state law and George Mason University policy requires all students to be immunized according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. Students can schedule an appointment to receive immunizations at SHS.
As a student registered for classes at George Mason University, you must be fully compliant with Mason’s and the Commonwealth of Virginia’s immunization requirements.
Students are strongly encouraged to meet immunization requirements at home and return the necessary forms as soon as possible. As the transition to the beginning of the semester can be a hectic experience, we recommend turning in necessary forms early. There can always the possibility if you send the forms to school with your student, they might be misplaced, forgotten, or lost.
Students can receive required immunizations with Student Health Services, your local health department, or your personal healthcare provider.

If you need to drop off your records at Student Health after-hours there is a drop box next to the Immunization Office in SUB I.
Drop Box Instructions: Place record forms in an envelope, clearly print your name and G# on all forms and envelope.
All students are responsible for ensuring that their records are complete. To verify that your records are complete, you may email or stop by the Immunization Office. If records are incomplete, you may be charged the immunization late fee after the appropriate deadline.
