Medical Clearance


To ensure a safe and healthy campus environment, all students* must satisfy medical clearance requirements to be medically cleared for enrollment at UAB. You will receive an evite from CertifiedProfile inviting you to create an account and submit your immunization documents electronically. You must satisfy these requirements by March 30th, 2015 to avoid having a registration hold placed on your student account.
*If you are in Nusing, Dentistry, Medicine, Optometry, Health Professions, Public Health or Graduate Biomedical Sciences:
You will not receive an evite. Instead, your school/program will contact you with instructions regarding your medical clearance process, how to create your CertifiedProfile and your deadline.



How do I know if I have met my requirements?

To view your requirement status, please log in to BlazerNET and click "Immunization Status" on your student profile page. If your status is “satisfied,” you have met your immunization requirements. If you recently satisfied these requirements, please allow time for the review of your documentation and update to your immunization status in BlazerNET. If your status is “not satisfied,” log in to your CertifiedProfile to view the requirements you have not yet satisfied.



What are my requirements?

1a. Based on your program of study and citizenship, select the appropriate form below to be completed by your healthcare provider.
Non-Clinical Domestic Immunization Form Non-Clinical International Immunization Form
Clinical Domestic Immunization Form Clinical International Immunization Form
OR

1b. If you already have copies of your original immunization records, you may submit those instead of the form provided above. In addition to these immunization records, you must complete and submit this health history form. Alabama residents should note that the state immunization "blue form" does not satisfy all UAB medical clearance requirements.

2. If you have a history of a positive TB test, the UAB TB questionnaire is required.
