Our Best Answer Do I have to submit immunization records?
Indiana state law requires all new students to submit immunization information. You must complete and submit the Online Immunization Compliance form in One.IU. You’ll need to know the month and year you were immunized as well as provide proof of immunization for the following diseases:
Measles (requires two immunizations)
Rubella (German measles)
Tetanus, Diptheria, Acellular Pertussis (Tdap)
Varicella (requires two immunizations)
Meningococcal disease (Meningitis)
If you’re an international student, you’ll need to provide documentation of tuberculosis (TB) testing in the United States.
If you cannot provide the dates you were immunized you’ll need to supply documentation from a medical provider if you’re unable to provide your immunization dates due to one of the following:
- You have immunity because you had the disease (measles/rubella and mumps only). A physician’s written statement is required to prove immunity.
- You have laboratory evidence of immune titer. A titer is a blood test that verifies whether you’re immune to certain diseases or vaccinations you’ve already had.
- You’re medically unable to be vaccinated. If you’re unable to be vaccinated due to a medical reason (for example, allergy to eggs, pregnancy, reaction to a vaccine, or participation in a current sequence of immunizations), you’ll need a physician’s written statement that documents each specific medical contraindication.
Immunization is self-reported by the student and we are not responsible for maintaining official immunization records. You may wish to contact your family physician in order to receive official documentation or you may have a health care provider administer a titer test that would indicate if you have the immunity. Those who served in the armed services may also be able to obtain official medical documentation indicating they have the necessary immunizations.
