The University of Redlands cares about the health of our students, whether you live on or off-campus. The medical forms ensure that your vaccinations are up to date and protected from certain infectious diseases. The forms also serve to provide insight into your medical history that can affect your well-being and/or your academics while at the University of Redlands.
Failure to fill out the forms will result in a registration hold, meaning that you will be unable to enroll for classes for your second term at the University of Redlands. The immunization form must be filled out completely. Partially filled-out immunization forms will not be accepted.
The University of Redlands follows guidelines for colleges and universities provided by the state of California and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Vaccines protect students from diseases that can derail academic progress. Everyone on campus, including faculty, staff and visitors--and especially the most vulnerable among us--is safer when students are vaccinated, thanks to the power of community (or herd) immunity.
No. You must input the vaccination dates on the immunization form in the student health portal.
You can contact your pediatrician’s office, high school, previous college, etc. and ask if they have your records.
If you cannot obtain records, you may need to repeat your vaccinations.
You may test for immunity if you have received the MMR, varicella, and/or hepatitis B vaccines in the past by doing a blood draw called a titer. If the titer for a specific disease shows that you’re not immune, you need to get vaccinated or re-vaccinated. There are no titers for meningococcal or Tdap.
A medical exemption means that you don’t have to show proof of vaccination. People with contraindications for vaccines cannot safely be vaccinated because they have medical conditions that might lead to a bad reaction to a vaccine. The University of Redlands no longer accepts non-medical exemptions to required vaccines.
Based on responses to the questionnaire, incoming students who are assessed as potentially at higher risk for TB infection will be requested to undergo further evaluation and testing, including TB testing with either skin or blood tests.
The medical history form is not a required form. However, it is highly recommended that you fill it out if you have pertinent medical history or allergies that may assist us in treating you. This information is important in the event that you need emergency medical care and are unable to report your medical history to medical professionals. It is better to fill in the information as best as possible than to leave it blank.
If you have questions regarding the health forms, required vaccines, immunity, or exemptions, you can contact the Student Health Center by e-mail or phone: email@example.com or (909) 748-8021. The Student Health Portal can be found online at https://redlands.studenthealthportal.com/
Do not wait until the last minute to work on your vaccination form. Give yourself ample time to schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider should any immunizations be missing, expired, or require titers as proof of immunity. Due to COVID-19 and limited appointment times experienced at primary care offices, there is growing concern that students may not be able to see their providers in a timely manner, delaying further their immunization compliance.
