The University of Pennsylvania requires all incoming students to be immunized against certain diseases and to submit this information to the Student Health Service Immunization Compliance Office. You must submit immunization history before you matriculate. This is a multi-step process and the deadline for submission is July 1.
The following is important information from Student Health Services regarding this compliance and submission of health forms (immunization record and medical history).
An overview of the immunization requirements including links to all instructions, documents, and a FAQ is located on the Wellness at Penn website. You will also fin instructions for submitting your Immunization History.
Veterinary Students should complete the NON-HEALTHCARE STUDENTS form. Please read the instructions carefully.
You can leave the Student ID# line blank (it should have been included in your Pennkey Set Up Code letter), but just make sure you include your full name and date of birth.
You will need to use your PennKey and Password to enter your immunization history. Please contact the SHS Immunization Office if you need any help. Please do not return this information to the Veterinary School. Submission of these health forms is a University requirement. If these forms are not submitted, or are incomplete, the University will place you on hold and not permit us to register you as a student. We strongly advise you to keep a copy of your immunization form for your records.
If you have questions regarding the immunization requirement or completing your history, please contact the Immunization Office directly at 215-746-3535 or via secure message at https://shs.upenn.edu.
