Immunization & TB Requirements

Immunization and Tuberculosis Testing Requirements

International students cannot register for classes until they have submitted documentation to University Health Services (UHS) that they have met the following immunization requirements:

  1. Proof of a meningococcal (bacterial meningitis) vaccine that was administered within five years of the first official day of classes of the spring 2013 semester (received on or after January 14, 2008). This applies to students who will be under age 30 on 1/14/08. For more information on the meningococcal vaccine requirement, go to www.healthyhorns.utexas.edu and click “Meningococcal Vaccine."
  2. Proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella
  3. A tuberculosis (TB) screening test performed in the United States

Please print the TB and Vaccination History for International Students form and have your healthcare provider complete and sign it. If you are outside the United States, DO NOT complete the TB screening portion. The TB test must be administered in the United States.

Take the completed, signed form with your immunization records to the UHS Allergy/Immunization Clinic upon arrival to Austin (Student Services Building, second floor). If your healthcare provider cannot complete the form, provide an alternate form of immunization documentation to UHS if you have it.

For details about medical clearance requirement, see Medical Requirements for International Students on the UHS website.
