Immunizations

ATSU/SOMA requires each student to have documented (1) completion of the required student immunization schedule prior to matriculation.  Please begin collecting these records from birth to present.

The Immunization Coordinator will contact you at a later date regarding actual submission of your immunization records.  If you have any question, please contact the Immunization Coordinator by email (Dmcbride@atsu.edu) or call 480 245-6251.

The following is the Immunization Policy, which should help you know what to obtain copies of or what you need to receive prior to sending in your records and completing them online.

Prior to matriculation, students must provide immunization records for:

  • Tuberculin Skin Test (TST OR PPD) or IGRA – results negative (must be current – this test  is only valid for One Year)
