All students born after 1956 must show proof of immunity to MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), either by giving proof of:
- 2 MMR Immunizations, given after the 1st birthday,
- 2 single doses of Measles and 1 dose of Rubella given after 1968, or
- a positive result of a Measles and Rubella Titer.
Hepatitis B Vaccine
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends this vaccine series. Effective July 1, 2008, all new matriculating students within the Florida State University System must provide documentation of vaccination against hepatitis B or provide a signed waiver.*
Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccine
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends this vaccine for students living in campus residence halls. Effective July 1, 2008, all new matriculating students within the Florida State University System must provide documentation of vaccination against meningococcal meningitis or provide a signed waiver.* Brand names of meningococcal meningitis vaccines include Menactra (MCV4), Menveo (MCV4), Menomune (MPSV4), Trumenba (Meningococcal Group B Vaccine), and Bexsero (Meningococcal Group B Vaccine).
new matriculating students 18 or older who choose not to be vaccinated against
either meningococcal meningitis or hepatitis B must submit a signed Student
Health Services Medical Compliance Immunization Form, attesting they have been made aware of the
potentially fatal nature of the diseases and choose not to be vaccinated (in
accordance with Florida Board of Regulation Code 6.001(9) and 6.007). All new
matriculating minor students must provide signed parental consent to opt out of
vaccination from either of these diseases.
How to Submit Immunizations:
The simplest way to comply with immunization requirements is to ask your physician office to complete the Student Health Services Medical Compliance Immunization Form.
The Immunization Form is a fillable PDF, but you must save the form to your computer/laptop after typing in information so that the information saves. We often receive blank forms because the form was not correctly saved prior to uploading it.
Completed forms and documents must be uploaded using your UNF student portal (UNF myWings).
Please upload the completed Immunization Form, and any MMR, Hepatitis B, or Meningococcal Meningitis immunization records for vaccines not validated by your physician's office.
Instructions for Uploading Documents
- Log into your myWings account
- Click on "Student Records"
- Click on "Student Self Service"
- Click on "Upload Student Documents"
Internet Explorer is the recommended browser, and please use a laptop or desktop because not all mobile devices are compatible.
Please email email@example.com for questions or concerns in the process. DO NOT send immunization documentation via email. It must be uploaded to your myWings portal.
For lifetime learning students (born in 1956 or before):
- Please fill out the LEFT side of the UNF immunization form in its entirety.
- You do not need to have a physician validate immunizations. Please sign and date the waiver of liability statements in box 2 and box 3 on the RIGHT side of the UNF immunization form.
- Submit the completed UNF immunization form to the medical compliance office.
