Keeping all students safe and healthy is a priority at UAB. As an entering student, youâ€™ll have to show proof of immunization against MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella), Td (tetanus and diphtheria), meningitis, and varicella, as well as screening for tuberculosis. If you donâ€™t have adequate proof of immunization, youâ€™ll have to get immunized again.
UAB is currently implementing a fully online system for students to submit immunization and other medical clearance requirements. Please do not submit any documentation at this time. We will email you with details about submitting your documentation.
Immunization requirements for international students are different than those for other students. Learn more about immunization requirements for international students in non-clinical fields.
