The University of West Florida (UWF), in compliance with Florida Statute (1006.69) and Florida Board of Governors Regulations (6.001 & 6.007), requires the completed UWF Mandatory Immunization Health History Form to be completed as a prerequisite to matriculation or registration. It is requested that the UWF Mandatory Immunization Health History Form is completed prior to registration for timely processing. Late, incomplete or inaccurate information may delay registration.

Immunization Requirements

All campus students are required to submit a one-time UWF Mandatory Immunization form through the Immunization Status app showing proof of the immunizations listed below in order to register for classes or reside on campus at UWF.

MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)

  • Two vaccinations are required with MMR.
  • Students born before January 1, 1957, are exempt from showing proof of vaccination against measles, mumps and rubella.
  • IgG titers showing proof of positive immunity to measles, mumps AND rubella may be submitted in place of the two MMR requirements.

Strongly Encouraged Immunizations 

The State of Florida requires a formal declination in order to decline or waive these immunizations. Students must be advised of the risks associated with not being vaccinated. The student must mark the waiver box under the Hepatitis B and Meningitis section of the UWF Mandatory Immunization form and sign and date, indicating that they understand the risks associated with not receiving the vaccines.

  • Meningococcal Meningitis—Proof of one immunization is sufficient. The CDC recommends a second immunization if the first was administered before the student was 15 years of age.
  • Hepatitis B—Proof of the completed two or three-shot vaccination series. (A titer showing immunity to Hepatitis B may be submitted in place of proof of the vaccination. The lab document must be submitted with the Student Immunization Form.)

Acceptable Documents as Evidence of Immunization

The following documents will be accepted as evidence of a student’s immunization history, provided they comply with state requirements and contain the student's name (the name on the immunization history must match the name registered with UWF), date of birth, and the date when each immunization was administered. 

  1. Official and permanent school record from another institution.
  2. Florida Certification of Immunization Form (DH 680 Form) signed by a medical professional. 
  3. Immunization Records Form must be signed, dated and stamped by a medical professional.
    • If titer has been performed, upload the lab slip with numerical values and date along with the Immunization Record Form.
  4. Documentation of required vaccinations through the U.S. Military. Forms indicating “indefinite immunity” will not be accepted. The student must submit the actual lab slip with the lab values and a date.
  5. Childhood vaccination card (booklet) as long as each vaccination is clearly recorded with the date of each vaccination. Each vaccination must be signed or initiated by the medical professional who administered the vaccine. 
  6. Official documentation from a medical facility, clinic, or pharmacy administering a required vaccine. 
  7. Completed Religious Exemption Form (DH 681 Form)
