To maintain a safe and healthy environment, UMHB requires all campus residents to submit proof of immunizations and basic health information as part of the Application for Residence Hall living. This application will be provided to students once they have been accepted for admission.
Meningococcal Vaccine is REQUIRED by Texas State law for
incoming first-time and/or transfer students who are 21 years or younger
(effective January 2014 regarding age requirement). A student must receive
vaccination or booster at least 10 days prior to the first day of class or
moving into campus housing, whichever occurs first. The vaccine must be
obtained within the last five years preceding enrollment or a booster is
required. For additional information visit https://corequest.dshs.texas.gov
Submit your Meningits record to email@example.com or fax to (254) 295-5049.
The Meningitis Immunization Notification form is to be used if your physician, pharmacist, or other health care provider did not provide you with a shot record/verification.
Meningitis Immunization Notification Form
- Health forms are required as part of the application for residence hall living.
- Submissions of a negative TB test is required for any international students from countries identified as "TB high-risk" by the World Health Organizations:
The test results must be dated no more than 6 months prior to the student's initial enrollment date at UMHB. Either a negative TB skin test or a negative (normal) chest x-ray report will be accepted. Results from tests completed in the United States may be included on the UMHB medical history form or scanned and emailed separately to UMHB health services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Results from tests completed outside the United States recorded on government-issued documents will generally be accepted by UMHB if original documents are presented by the student upon arrival. UMHB reserves the right to review the source of test results to determine if they will be accepted.
- If you have ever tested positive to a TB skin test, a current negative chest x-ray is required.
- International students check with International Services to verify current requirements.
- A TB skin test is strongly recommended for students who has lived outside the U.S.for 8 or more consecutive weeks whether international or not.
Students 18 years old or younger may receive their required/recommended vaccinations for a substantial reduced rate by checking with their local county health department. Once students turn 19 they no longer fall under the federal program: Vaccines for Children and the prices go up. If you begin a series at age 18 you will continue to receive the vaccine series for the lower rate even if you turn 19 prior to finishing the series
F.Y.I. The physician's physical examination is encouraged, but NOT REQUIRED
If you will live in campus housing and choose to be exempt from immunziation requirements, be sure to use the official Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) form.
