Students requesting a medical exemption from UAB immunization requirements must provide UAB Student Health Services (SHS) with all documentation supporting the medical necessity for exemption. SHS is responsible for reviewing each request and determining whether or not an exemption is warranted. The SHS Medical Director is the final authority for UAB on exemption 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 exemptions granted (e.g. specific immunization requirements waived, expiration date of exemptions granted, etc.).
