What immunizations are recommended or required for students?

Are immunizations recommended? U-M recommends that students come to school fully immunized to protect their health. Immunizations are one of the most effective public health measures in preventing communicable diseases.

Are immunizations required? U-M students living in Michigan Housing on the Ann Arbor campus are required to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination and other immunizations under the university's vaccination policy. See the university's Health Response site for more information. Students may request medical or religious exemptions for the COVID-19 requirement and there will be an attestation process for those who do not submit proof of the other immunizations. 

How to submit a student's immunization records

All U-M students residing in Michigan Housing on the Ann Arbor campus beginning in fall 2023 are required to submit documentation showing whether they are vaccinated for specific vaccinations in line with the CDC immunization schedule. Students who are not applying for Michigan Housing are encouraged to complete these forms, as well.

The electronic immunization forms are accessible on Wolverine Access. Vaccination information entered in these forms will be shared with UHS for incorporation into your health record.

Frequently asked questions

Is a tuberculosis (TB) test required? A TB test is not a university requirement, however academic programs or volunteer activities may have different requirements.

Is a physical exam required? You may want to arrange for a physical exam with your home health care provider and update immunizations at that time, but a physical exam is not required by the university. (Athletic teams or clubs may have different requirements.)

Does UHS give immunizations? Are there fees? Immunizations are available at UHS for a fee. See Immunizations.

Do minors need parent /guardian consent for immunizations? Yes, students under 18 years old need written parent/guardian consent to receive immunizations. To give consent, parents/guardians should complete the Parent / Guardian Consent for a Minor to Receive Health Care Services form.

Will my immunizations be available in the patient portal? Once immunization records are submitted through the UHS student health information form, they are entered into the student's electronic health record. Please note that this process takes time and they may not be visible until after your first appointment.

How do I set up my patient portal? After the UHS student health information form is submitted, you will receive an email from Michigan Medicine that includes a unique link and activation code to set up your patient portal (UHS and Michigan Medicine share our electronic health records). Please create your account within 24 hours after receiving this email.
