QUESTIONS

  • Lost/No Documentation

    If you lost or did not receive documentation at the time of your vaccine, follow these instructions to download an official verification document (applies to those who received the vaccine in North Carolina).

    You can check your Student Health Portal under immunizations for confirmation that we received your documentation.

  • How can I check my vaccine documentation status?

    The status of your vaccine documentation will be available in the Student Health Portal under My Profile > Immun. History. If you see the flu/influenza vaccine or COVID booster listed (along with the date you received it) on your Immun. History page, this means that your documentation has been reviewed and accepted, and that you’re in compliance with the policies. 

    Student Health Service will update any documentation received after Dec. 22 by Jan. 5. If you do not see your most recent vaccine documentation under My Profile > Immun. History, check the Secure Messages section of the Student Health Portal. It may be that your vaccine documentation is missing required information.

    If you submitted an exemption request, the status of your exemption request will also be available in the Student Health Portal under My Profile > Immun. History. If you see a medical or religious exemption listed on your Immun. History page for the flu vaccine or COVID booster, this means that your exemption request has been reviewed and accepted. If you do not see that, check your Secure Messages within the Student Health portal.

    Individuals with documented medical contraindications to COVID-19 vaccines may submit exemption request documentation.

  • Religious Beliefs Exemption Requests

    If the bona fide religious beliefs of a student (or the parent, guardian if under age 18) are contrary to the immunization requirement for a COVID-19 vaccine, the student will be exempt of the requirement upon submission of a written statement of the bona fide religious beliefs and opposition to the immunization requirement.
