Step 2: Submit Immunization Records

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

Summer Orientation Requirements

In order to attend on-campus Summer Orientation, new first-year students must be up to date with COVID-19 vaccination and have submitted vaccine documentation to UB by June 1. Follow the steps below to comply.

UB's definition of up to date with COVID-19 vaccination is a complete series and booster when eligible.

How to Meet Immunization Requirements

You must provide an official record of your measles, mumps and rubella immunity and meet the requirements for meningitis and COVID-19.

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 positive IgG immunity to measles, mumps and rubella. You will still need to provide proof of meningitis vaccine or decline through the HUB Student Center. You will also need to email proof of COVID-19 vaccination to Health Services.
  • 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.
