Transfer students

Transfer students must request immunizations from their current college or university and have them sent to UofSC. The University of South Carolina cannot access immunization records from other campuses, including those within the UofSC system. 


Recommended Immunizations

We recommend all students get these preventive vaccines for their overall health and well-being.

  • Gardasil (all students younger than 26)
  • Hepatitis A & B
  • Varicella (chicken pox)
  • Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap)
  • Meningococcal Group B
  • The SARS-CoV2 Vaccine is highly recommended.


Allergy Shots

You can get your allergy shots without leaving campus.

All new incoming allergy patients should start the process by scheduling a consultation appointment in the Allergy, Immunization and Travel (AIT) department. The AIT staff will explain our services, facilitate the approval process through your off-campus allergist and collaborate with a UHS primary care physician for approval to receive your injections at UHS.  This process must be completed prior to the administration of any allergy injections.

We do not administer first dose allergy injections when starting immunotherapy treatment. Your first dose must be given at your allergist's office.

Bring In Your Own Serum
You must bring in your own allergy serum, which must be mixed and prescribed by your allergist. 

After Your Injection
You must wait in the office 30 minutes after your allergy shots.

We charge a fee for this service. Call 803-777-3174 for information about fees based on your allergy shot schedule.
