HSC and College of Public Health Student Requirements

Proof of adequate immunization and updated Tuberculin Skin Test (PPD) records are requirements for clinical rotations. Failure to provide proof of compliant immunizations or titers will prevent you from doing clinical work.

Below are the pre-matriculation immunization requirements for Health Sciences, College of Public Health and School of Podiatry students. Please contact Student Health Services at 215-707-4088 to make an appointment if necessary.  Please note that the primary COVID-19 Vaccine series is still required for all students in healthcare settings.  Currently Temple University does not require a COVID Booster.  Requirements at outside clinical locations may vary.  Please consult with your clinical advisor.
