Flagler College follows the Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services requirements for measles and rubella vaccinations. All students born after 1956 are required to present documented proof of two (2) measles immunizations. Also, students, regardless of age, shall present documented proof of two (2) immunizations against rubella. All students must be vaccinated against Meningococcal Meningitis and Hepatitis B or sign a waiver declining the vaccines.
In case of a serious illness or accident, which requires specialized care, students must seek care from outside sources. In most cases, parents will be notified by the Dean of Student Services. Students preferring to consult a physician outside of Flagler College may do so at their own expense.

The nursing staff is on campus Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There is also a Physician on campus Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. Students see the doctor on a first come first serve basis.
