Immunization Documentation Procedure
Students are requested to submit their immunization documentation at least three (3) weeks prior to registration.
Complete the UWF Mandatory Immunization Health History (MIHH) Form
If you haven't already done so, complete the online Mandatory Immunization Health History Form. Some fields will be pre-filled. If any of the pre-filled information is incorrect, please contact Admissions at (850) 474-2230, or email@example.com. You will be asked to provide consent for medical treatment and to specify the documentation you will be providing to SHS for the MMR, Hepatitis B, and Meningococcal Meningitis vaccinations.
Return immunization documentation to Student Health Services (SHS) via:
- Drop Off: Drop the form in the Immunizations Drop Box near the front entrance of the Student Wellness Center (Building 960).
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Fax: (850) 857-6100
- Mail: University of West Florida, 11000 University Pkwy, Building 960 - Suite 106, Pensacola, Florida, 32514
Your immunization documentation will be reviewed for accuracy and completeness by SHS upon receipt. In most cases, your immunization holds will be updated on the same day the documentation is received. Log into MyUWF and search for the "Immunization Status" app to determine when your hold(s) have been removed and you are cleared to register for classes.
Important Things to Remember
Email is not a secure form of communication and transmission. Due to the confidential nature of health information, Student Health Services cannot respond to students via email. Please call us at (850) 474-2172, option 2, if you have questions related to immunizations.
If you are having trouble gathering all required immunization records, check out these Tips for Locating Old Immunization Records. If you still cannot get all the required records, you may wish to obtain new vaccinations. As an alternative, you can request a blood titer for MMR and for Hepatitis B that will confirm your immune status. See Immunization Fees for the cost of these titers.
Always include your name, birth date, and UWF Student ID number on all correspondence. SHS is unable to locate records without this unique number. Photocopies are accetpable. Originals will not be returned.
