Health insurance & health history
Proof of health insurance is mandatory at UVM. Students must complete an insurance waiver/decision form online each year to declare current insurance information or to purchase the UVM Student Health Insurance. A description of the requirement and the form is available online. Students must also complete a health history form, which is only available online.
Students must submit hard copy documentation of immunization history, and they must also enter the information online. Acceptable evidence of a student’s immunization history includes official school, physician or public health records, or laboratory report of a titer indicating immunity to a specific disease.
Immunizations should be obtained from your current health care provider and documentation must be sent to UVM. Students in health science majors are required to have proof of titers for some of the immunizations.
UVM students must provide documentation of the following immunizations (detailed descriptions are available online):
1 Tdap/Td booster given within the past 10 years
2 Measles, 2 Mumps, and 2 Rubella (or 2 MMR)
3 Hepatitis B
1 Meningococcal conjugate (MCV4/meningitis) vaccine after the 16th birthday, for students living in residence halls.
2 Varicella/Chicken Pox (or documentation indicating history of the disease)
