Student Health Services Main Entrance Welcome Class of 2022!!!

Hello Students and Families,

As you are trying to squeeze every last little drop out of summer, I wanted to reach out to welcome you and your families to the College of Charleston. We are very excited to have you headed our way and will work very hard to keep you healthy in mind, body and spirit while you live, work and play at The College.

In an effort to do that, I am sending out a reminder that The College of Charleston requires authenticated proof of vaccination for Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (TDaP) as well as Meningitis (ex: Menactra, Menveo). At this time, the College does not require vaccination against Meningitis B. If you have not already done so, please turn in a recent immunization record and completed health history form ASAP. Links to the forms can be found on our website at: . If you are legitimately exempt from vaccination, you can find our waiver form on our website too. This will need to be signed and notarized prior to submitting.

You can upload the vaccination record (instructions on our website) and/or drop off both documents at Student Health Services (forms can also be mailed to the address below). Forms were due on July 1, 2018. You can also go into your MyStudentHealth account online (in MyCharleston) and check to see for yourself if the appropriate paperwork has been turned in.

We hope you and your family has a happy, healthy and fun remainder of the summer. Please feel free to call me at the number below if you have further questions.

Thank you for entrusting us with your care while you are a student at the College of Charleston.

Go Cougars!!
