The commonwealth of Virginia and VCU require that all full-time students supply validated immunization records to University Student Health Services. This requirement must be completed prior to registering for a second semester. Failure to meet these requirements will result in a hold placed on the student's second semester registration. The hold can be removed only upon receipt of the students documented records.
The immunization record must be completed fully and accurately. There are two ways a student may fulfill all requirements:
- Students may have their health care provider transfer the information from their medical records and sign the form.
- Students may complete the top demographic section of the Certificate of Immunization and attach a copy of official documents from undergraduate institutions, military records, high school or other records that fulfill all requirements to the Certificate of Immunization.
A copy of the Certificate of Immunization, which details the necessary immunizations, is available on the Student Health Services website.
Students who cannot provide documented evidence of all required immunizations must see their health care provider, health department or Student Health Services to complete all requirements.
