Immunizations

Texas Immunization Registry

ImmTrac2 is a voluntary immunization registry service provided by the Texas Department of State Health Services. By utilizing this service you can safely and confidentially store your immunizations in one location.

Immunizations Offered

Due to the high cost of immunizations the Health Clinic needs to be reimbursed. If your insurance is one of the ones we are able to file on and they pay for that immunization, you will not be required to pay. Otherwise, cash or check payment will be needed. Call the office for more specific details.

Immunization Records

The SFA Health Clinic strongly advises all students to submit immunization records to the Clinic even if a copy was submitted to Admissions.

The SFA Health Clinic's Immunization Record Form can be filled out, or your vaccination record can be submitted in any format. Please provide basic legible identification information: student's full name, date of birth, contact information, and campus/student identification number (if assigned). Usually, you can obtain a copy of your immunization records from your high school. Please fax or mail a copy to:

SFA Student Health Clinic
P.O. Box 13058
Nacogdoches, TX 75962-3058
Phone: (936) 468-4008; Fax: (936) 468-1316

Some degree plans require submission of immunization records (or proof of immunity) of specific vaccinations to enroll in their program. See the admission requirements of the department in which you wish to major.

Tuberculin (TB) Testing

Tuberculin (TB) skin testing is offered year around for any currently enrolled student. The test can be performed annually if you have never had a positive TB test. You must be able to return to the clinic for the test to be 'read' by a nurse within 48 to 72 hours after receiving the antigen. For this reason, we can only administer the skin tests on Monday, Tuesday, or Fridays. If you do not return to the clinic within this period of time, it will be necessary to repeat the test - but only after a period of at least 1 month has elapsed. A $10.00 charge will be assessed for a repeat test.
