Do you want to submit a student's immunization records?
Students are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and submit their vaccination information by August 15. See Form for Students to Report COVID-19 Vaccination and Frequently Asked Questions about reporting your vaccination.
To report all other vaccinations, please fill out this UHS immunizations survey. This survey will also collect insurance information so that it will be on file with UHS, in your patient portal, in the event it's needed for a service not covered by the health service fee.
To submit immunization records by mail, print and complete this Immunization Form for New Students.
