When you register for your first term at IU Bloomington, you’re required to complete an immunization compliance form. Log into One.IU and go to Immunization Compliance to submit your information. You won’t be allowed to register for the following semester until you complete your immunization compliance form. You must submit this form even if you’ve already completed the IU Health Center’s health history questionnaire. Learn more about the IU immunization policy.
You won’t be allowed to register for the following semester until you complete your immunization compliance form.
What you’ll need to complete the form
- You’ll need to know the date you were immunized as well as provide proof of immunization for the following diseases:
- Measles (requires two immunizations)
- Rubella (German measles)
- Tetanus, Diphtheria, Acellular Pertussis (Tdap)
- Varicella (requires two immunizations)
- Meningococcal disease (meningitis)
- Starting Fall 2018, first year students aged 21 or younger will have to be immunized with one dose of MenACWY (MCV4) on or after their 16th birthday. Additionally, first year students aged 23 or younger will have to be immunized with two doses of MenB.
- If you’re an international student, you’ll need to provide documentation of tuberculosis (TB) testing in the United States.
What if you can’t 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 (with the exception of Tuberculosis and Tdap). 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.
Upload your physician's written statement and/or documentation to your immunization compliance form. Or you may bring or mail your paperwork to Student Central.
How to request a religious exemption
You must submit a written, signed (by you) request for exemption if you have not been immunized due to religious reasons. You can file a religious exemption letter instead of a completed immunization compliance form. Upload your letter to Student Central using our secure contact form. Under “Topic,” choose “Student records,” then “Update immunization.” (Or you may bring or mail your letter to Student Central.)
Note that if you file a religious exemption, you’ll be required to leave campus if an outbreak of any of the diseases listed above occurs on or near campus.
