Vaccination Requirements

District of Columbia law requires all students under the age of 26 to have a record on file with the Student Health Service (SHS) providing proof of certain vaccinations. Students age 26 and older are automatically exempt from university vaccination requirements. Medical and Health Science students should contact their academic department for additional requirements. SHS can give all required inoculations on a fee-for-service basis. For further information or questions, please review the SHS Vaccination Requirements or e-mail immunreq@gwu.edu.

New students will be able to register for their first semester without a health form on file. However, a hold will be placed on your account to prevent future registration if all required vaccination records are not submitted to the Student Health Service.
