Proof of immunization is required for all new students.
You must provide an official record of your measles, mumps and rubella immunity and meet the requirements for meningitis. (Please note, as of April 11, 2023, proof of COVID-19 vaccination is no longer required). Submit your records to UB as soon as possible.
Choose ONE of the following ways to comply:
Once your immunization records have been received, processed, reviewed and deemed compliant with requirements, your health holds will be removed; this will be reflected in your HUB Student Center in real time. This usually occurs 5-10 business days after we receive your compliant records (although it can take a few extra business days during the 3 months prior to the start of a semester).
Students will not be individually contacted to confirm receipt of records. Please check the HUB system (NOT your Patient Portal) for the current status of your holds.
If your paperwork is not in compliance, you will receive an electronic message from Student Health Services. This message is sent to the student’s @buffalo.edu email address.
Please contact us only if you have a hold on your account for a prolonged period of time after submitting your records/forms:
Please allow 10-15 business days for Student Health Services to process your records and update UB Learns.
Submitting your immunization records via the Student Health Medical Records (Patient Portal) is the easiest way to comply with the requirement, and you can easily track when UB processes you records.
Tip: Have your previous school fax Student Health Services your immunization records.
