HELPFUL TIPS

A couple of important points on immunizations –

  1. Your requirement for Hepatitis B is not complete until you have documentation of a positive titer (basically, a blood test with a numeric result (QUANTITATIVE Hepatitis B Surface Antibody Titer) that shows that you are immune to Hepatitis B).  Make sure your health care provider is ordering the right type of test.
  2. Having had chickenpox does NOT count for the Varicella requirement. You will need the vaccine series (two shots), or a positive titer.
  3. You need two (2) tuberculosis screening tests 12 months before enrollment (i.e. in the 12 months prior to August). Ideally, you would have your first PPD test, then a second one 1 – 3 weeks after the first. However, if you had a PPD test six months ago, you would just have to get another completed before enrollment and that would be fine.
  4. For Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis, you need the TDaP vaccine, NOT DTaP (they’re spelled very similarly). Many of you have had the DTaP vaccine as kids, you would now need the adult vaccine; a TD booster does not fulfill this requirement.
STEP 1 – ACCESS TO VERIFYSTUDENTS (DRUG SCREEN) AND IMMUNITRAX (IMMUNIZATIONS)

Register & create an account with VerifyStudents to obtain a urine drug screen authorization form and access to ImmuniTrax, the online system where students upload immunization and other enrollment requirement information.  Please note, your drug screen authorization form is good only for a short period of time.  Do not obtain your authorization if you are not ready to complete your urine drug screen within two or three days.

STEP 2 – IMMUNIZATIONS, PHYSICAL EXAM, MENINGITIS VACCINE

Once your access to ImmuniTrax has been received, collect documentation of immunizations:

Uploading documentation to ImmuniTrax:

Once you have collected your documentation and are ready to upload to ImmuniTrax, please note the following:

  • You must enter the dates of your immunization requirements, NOT the date you are inputting the information.  ImmuniTrax will not review your documentation without the date being entered.
  • Review of documents will take a couple of business days.  You will receive email messages as your status changes or if they have questions on your information.
STEP 3 – URINE DRUG SCREEN

All medical students are required to undergo a urine drug screen upon matriculation. Specific information can be found utilizing the VerifyStudents link in Step 1 above.  You must upload your urine drug screen results to ImmuniTrax (under Urinalysis).  VerifyStudents does NOT send results directly to UCF COM.

STEP 4 – UCF STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES

Submit proof of immunizations ONLY (i.e. AAMC Standardized Immunization Form, UCF Student Health Services Supplemental Meningitis Form and supporting documentation) to UCF Student Health Services.

STEP 5 – HEALTH INSURANCE

All enrolled students must show proof of health insurance coverage. For information regarding the UCF health insurance plan, please click here.  Enrollment for the upcoming academic year opens in July.

Proof of Health Insurance must be uploaded to ImmuniTrax.  Please refer to Step 1 above for creating an account.

STEP 5 – DISABILITY INSURANCE

There is no need to send documentation to the Office of Student Affairs.  The Office of Student Affairs will receive a roster of students who have enrolled for the academic year.  For information on disability insurance, please visit the disability insurance section of the website.  Disability insurance is an annual requirement.

If not enrolling with the UCF COM disability insurance plan, complete and submit the Proof of Disability Insurance Form to meet this requirement.

Proof of disability insurance does NOT need to be uploaded to Immunitrax.
