Health Policies

Immunizations

All new students are required to complete a Health History Form and an Immunizations Record. Documentation of your immunizations or serologic evidence of immunity (titers) should be obtained from your physician prior to starting school. Failure to adequately document immunity to preventable childhood illnesses or to undergo and document annual tuberculosis tests will prevent you from registering for classes and may result in removal from clinical rotations.

*Flu vaccination documentation (via CastleBranch)

1st year students You can upload your flu documentation now. However, if you have uploaded a flu declination form instead of the flu vaccine document earlier this year, you will not be able to upload your updated flu documentation until after contacting CastleBranch (888.914.7279) to request they open another flu slot for you. If you still have issues, you may call Student Health (667.214.1883).

2nd – 4th year students You will receive notifications from CastleBranch regarding the Influenza vaccine, however, you will not be able to upload the documentation until 21 days prior to the deadline date (deadline date viewable in CastleBranch). Any issues you may contact Student Health 667.214.1883 or CastleBranch 888.914.7279.
