Immunizations are given for continued health and protection against certain diseases. Students can obtain most immunizations at the Health and Counseling Center. 

Required immunization for enrollment:

MMR: The state of Oregon requires that anyone born after Dec. 31, 1956, must show proof of a second measles vaccination. College students will not be able to register for classes until they complete the Immunization Form found in MyGeorgeFox under University Forms.

To complete this form, please log in to MyGeorgeFox and complete the Immunization Form found under "Self Service," "University Forms."

COVID-19 vaccine strongly recommended

Vaccines are a critical step to slowing and ultimately ending the COVID-19 pandemic. George Fox University is strongly encouraging students and employees to get a COVID-19 vaccination, but is not requiring vaccination. At least 75% of our Newberg students have received the vaccine. (This percentage doesn't include the 60 students who told us they planned to get vaccinated this summer but haven't updated their status.)

The American College Health Association (ACHA) recommends the following additional immunizations:

COVID-19: The federal government is providing the COVID-19 vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status.

Meningococcal: Meningococcal ACWY meningitis is a very serious bacterial infection of the lining around the brain and spinal cord. It requires rapid diagnosis and treatment with antibiotics. Meningitis B is a different strain of meningitis which has been responsible for some cases of meningitis seen in Oregon. There is a vaccine series available for Meningitis B, also. It is a different vaccine series than that for Meningitis ACWY.

Tuberculosis (TB) Test: This is a simple test to determine if the subject has been exposed to TB bacteria. A small amount of the TB antigen is injected just under the skin, and the skin is checked after 48 hours for a reaction to the antigen. If there is a reaction, then treatment options are discussed.

Hepatitis A, and Hepatitis B: Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B are viruses that attack the liver. Hepatitis A is spread by contaminated food and Hepatitis B is spread by body fluids. 

Tetanus, and Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis): Tetanus is a serious disease caused by a toxin (poison) made by bacteria that’s commonly found in soil. Diphtheria is a serious disease that spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes. A person can spread the disease for up to 2 weeks after infection. Pertussis—commonly referred to as whooping cough—is very contagious and can cause prolonged, sometimes extreme, coughing.
