Student Health News
All of us at the Student Health Center at the University of South Alabama are pleased to announce that we have received notice that we have achieved a full three-year re-accreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
This is an important milestone in the continuing growth and success of our student health center. We are so pleased to inform you that out of 610 standards, we met or exceeded compliance in all but four of these standards with a PERFECT score on our overall chapter compliance level. We are very proud of everyone that had a role in this accomplishment because it is a rigorous on-site survey that not all student health centers across the country can achieve.
The patient web portal is now available for students to go on-line for forms and check to see if there is a balance owed to the Student Health Center, and to receive communication from their healthcare provider. Students are encouraged to enroll in the web portal by going to https://studenthealth.southalabama.edu . If you have questions, call (251) 460-7151.
Beginning with the fall semester 2007, the University of South Alabama began requiring that all first-time entering students born after 1956 provide proof of 2 doses of a measles containing vaccine (rubeola, M.R., MMR) prior to registration. One dose must have been after 1980 and at least one of the doses must have been an MMR. Blue cards (IMM 50) or copies of Blue Cards will be accepted.
All new students will be required to complete a proof of immunization compliance form located on the web portal.
Submit your immunization documents and complete the questionnaire at the Student Health Webportal: https://studenthealth.southalabama.edu or send to email@example.com
The Student Health Center staff stresses the importance of being informed about the importance of receiving vaccination against bacterial meningitis, especially those students who live in residence halls, to reduce the risk of acquiring the disease.
