Vaccination Policy/Immunization Requirements

All undergraduate students must provide a completed immunization form  that includes proof of immunity to rubella and rubeola (measles), also known as MMR vaccine, before registering for classes. In addition, residential students are required to have the hepatitis B series and meningitis immunizations. The meningitis vaccine must have been given on, after the 16th birthday, or within 4 years prior to arriving at Jacksonville University. For hepatitis B or meningitis, a waiver may be signed stating the student understands the disease and the availability of the vaccine, but has opted not to be vaccinated. This waiver can be found on page two of the immunization form.

If a student only has a waiver and there is a reported case or cases of the disease, the student may be restricted from classes or campus.

All completed immunization forms should be submitted to:

Office of Admissions, Jacksonville University 
2800 University Boulevard North 
Jacksonville, FL 32211.
