Requesting a Medical Exception from Immunization RequirementsStudents requesting a medical exception from UAB immunization requirements must provide UAB Student Health Services (SHS) with all documentation supporting the medical necessity for exception. SHS is responsible for reviewing each request and determining whether or not an exception is warranted. The SHS Medical Director is the final authority for UAB on exception decisions and is responsible for notifying students (through their CertifiedBackground.com account profiles) and College/Schools with decision results. College/School Deans will designate single points of contact for SHS to communicate information relevant to any exceptions granted (e.g. specific immunization requirements waived, expiration date of exceptions granted, etc.).
