Immunization and Tuberculosis Screening Certificate
The 2018 - 2019 Immunization Certificate should be returned to the Student Health Center for the first year students by July 1st for the Fall semester and December 15th for the Spring semester.
All Medical, Nursing and GEMS (health professions) should NOT use this form and should follow the guidelines outlined in the Georgetown University School of Medicine Immunization Matriculation Requirement document or follow the School of Nursing and Health Studies Clinical Health Clearance information or contact your respective departments for immunization requirements. In regards t0 the health professions students PPD requirement, a 2-step PPD-Mantoux is required and must be done within the past 12 months. The 2nd PPD should be placed 1-3 weeks after the 1st PPD. Quantiferon Gold or T-Spot can be done in lieu of 2-step testing.
For public health purposes and to maintain a healthy environment for its students, faculty and staff, Georgetown University requires incoming students to provide a certification that they have received required immunizations. District of Columbia law (D.C. Code §38-502) also requires universities to obtain immunization certifications from each student. As described in your orientation materials, the required Immunization Form must be completed, signed by a health care provider and returned to the Student Health Center by July 1 (or by December 15 for students entering in the Spring Semester). Failure to meet this deadline may result in a $100 fee and prevent students from registering for classes. If, after reviewing the Immunization Form, you or your health care provider have questions, please contact the Office of Student Health at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-687-2200.
We recommend that all travelers check with their primary care physician before embarking on any journey to make sure that you are up to date with all of your required vaccinations and inoculations. For the latest health recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, please visit http://www.cdc.gov/travel.
Appointments can be made through the Student Health Center. Please complete the Pre-Travel Health Consultation and History Form and return via email with the subject - Travel Visit and Date of Appointment prior to your clinic visit.
Students should make the determination about whether their existing health insurance provides adequate coverage to pay for primary care services at the Student Health Center or in the Washington, DC area.
For students with the Georgetown Student Health Premier Plan health insurance, please bring your GO card.
For students who have outside insurance plans, there are several other travel immunization clinics in the DC area.
Please be advised: Appointments fill up quickly due to the high number of travelling students during the season; booking in advance is highly recommended.
