Student Athletes

Sports physicals are done primarily to make sure you are not at high risk for sudden cardiac death on the playing field. COVID vaccination affects your risk.

In response to worldwide experience and vaccine adverse-event monitoring, we are adopting a more precautionary sports physical sign-off policy:

If you have received at least one dose of any COVID shot, we will not be able to clear you to compete in sports without performing lab work, an electrocardiogram and an echocardiogram to rule out potential heart damage. You will need to get your lab work done before you come in for your visit. You will also need to schedule an appointment with a cardiologist.
