Mandatory Steps to Complete by September 29

  1. Collect Your Documents

    • If you have health insurance: Request your immunization records from your primary care physician.
    • Regardless of health insurance status:
      • Your state immunization registry may maintain immunization records. You can find a listing of these registries on the CDC website.
      • Your high school may also have a copy of your immunization records (must list each dose).
  2. Get Immunized/Tested

    • If you have health insurance:
      • If you are missing any required immunizations, make an appointment with your primary care provider to get up-to-date.
      • If you don't know whether or not you received a required immunization, your primary care provider may be able to offer a titer test to document your immunity.
    • Regardless of health insurance status:
      • Student Health Services (SHS) can refer students to off-campus immunization providers. Call SHS to make an appointment for a referral: 805-437-8828. SHS does not provide immunizations to students at this time.
  3. Upload Your Documents

    • Instructions will be emailed to you if you are identified as a required student. Please be sure to check your Dolphin email account.
    • Do not email, mail, or drop off your documents with the University.
