Declination

If you have a medical contraindication to any of Emory's immunization requirements, please submit a letter of explanation, signed by both you and your healthcare provider, along with your other immunization records.

Emory Student Health Services (EUSHS) is aware that some students have a strong personal objection to vaccination with one or more of the required vaccines. EUSHS requires that those students meet with an EUSHS immunization nurse by appointment to share their concerns. During this meeting the student will be provided additional information, and, if they then still so choose, accept by signature the possible risks associated with refusing vaccination.

Please note that the Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Requirement  (for health sciences students and international students from specific TB endemic countries) cannot  be declined.

For information about specific vaccinations, please see the CDC vaccine information statements.”
