Step 2: Submit Immunization Records

Proof of immunization is required for all new students. Fulfill your immunization requirements before proceeding to Step 3.

How to Meet Immunization Requirements

You must provide an official record of your measles, mumps and rubella immunity and meet the meningitis requirements.
Choose ONE of the following ways to comply:

  • Submit a copy of your immunization record from a previous school or your health care provider. (Must be on official letterhead; copy from doctor must be signed and include office address and phone. Many medical practices or previous schools have an online portal you can use to print an official copy to send to UB.)
  • Submit the Health Background Form after having it completed by your health care provider.
  • Submit copies of bloodwork proving immunity to measles, mumps and rubella. You will still need to provide proof of meningitis vaccine or decline through the HUB Student Center.
  • For residents of New York State, you can contact the state immunization registry. Call (518) 473-2839 or email NYSIIS at to request a copy of your immunization history.

New/Incoming Students

Once your immunization records have been received, processed, reviewed and deemed compliant with requirements by our immunization coordinator, your IMM and MEN holds will be removed; this will be reflected in your HUB Student Center in real time. This will occur 5-7 business days after we receive your compliant records.

Students will not be individually contacted to confirm receipt of records. Please check the HUB system for the current status of your service indicators.

If your paperwork is not in compliance, you will receive an email from Health Services.

Please contact us only if you have a hold on your account for a prolonged period of time after submitting your records/forms:

  • More than 5 business days (7 business days during high volume months of June, July & August) after faxing or bringing in-person
  • More than 3 weeks after mailing

Returning Students in a Health-Related Program

Please allow 10 business days for Health Services to process your records and update UBlearns.

Submitting Immunization Records during COVID-19

You may have difficulty obtaining immunization records with the current COVID-19 pandemic. You have have plenty of time to obtain and submit your records as most new students do not register for classes until May and June.

To make things as easy as possible for our new students, we will also accept records via email.

Transfer Students

Tip: Have your previous school fax us your immunization records.
