Upload Immunization Records

Health Services will only be accepting immunization records that are uploaded to the Patient Portal. Log in using your NetID and school password then verify your birthdate. Select the Forms and Requirements tab on the left side of your home screen and follow the directions to upload your immunizations. If you need to submit a religious exemption for immunizations, that is also located on the patient portal under the Optional Upload Form tab on the left side. Please email healthservices@uis.edu with any questions related to the immunizations process. The form must be complete, digitally signed, and on file in Health Services by the semester deadlines.

Fulfilling Immunization Requirements

  • Health Services requires Yellow Cards from the World Health Organization (WHO) as evidence for immunizations administered outside of the United States. Students unable to produce a Yellow Card to verify non-domestic vaccinations may receive the necessary immunizations at UIS Health Services or at any domestic health care provider of their choosing.
