Process for Providing Required Immunization Records

NEW FOR FALL 2021:  All resident and commuter students must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccine, or submit an exemption for medical or religious reasons, in addition to the immunizations listed below.  

FLU VACCINE REQUIRMENT:  All students must provide proof of a flu vaccine administered between August 1, 2021, and January 15, 2022.  Medical and religious exemptions will be accepted for all required vaccines.

DePauw requires that all students submit a completed Immunization Record through Med+Proctor (www.medproctor.com) by August 1, 2021. Students who fail to submit the Immunization Record will not be permitted to register for classes for spring 2022. Required immunizations to be submitted through Med+Proctor include varicella (2 doses), meningococcal (1 dose after the age of 16), hepatitis B, TDaP booster (within the last 10 years), MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), COVID-19, and influenza. International students will also require a tuberculosis screening in the United States. See www.depauwhealth.org for more information.

Proof of these immunizations can ONLY be provided by completing the process,
including the specific form, at www.medproctor.com.
No other documentation will be accepted to meet this requirement. 

Please visit our DePauw Health Med+Proctor website and follow the prompts to securely upload your immunization information.

You can only submit these immunizations on the Med+Proctor form through the Med+Proctor system. Immunizations submitted to DePauw Health officials or elsewhere will NOT satisfy the requirement. 

Additional Immunization Information

For information on recommended vaccinations for college students and travel immunizations, read the Immunization Policy Document.

Immunization Exemptions

Requests for exemption from the immunization requirements for other than medical reasons may be recognized by DePauw based on religious grounds only. Requests for exemption must be made in writing, in advance of the start of classes and signed by the student.

Requests for exemption from immunization requirements based on medical grounds must be accompanied by a written statement from the student’s healthcare provider indicating the nature and duration of the medical condition which contraindicates an immunization, along with the specific vaccine identified as detrimental to the student’s health, certifying pregnancy or suspected pregnancy, or verifying that the student is currently completing the course of all required immunizations. Medical exemptions expire when the medical condition(s) contraindicating immunization change in a manner which permits immunization. All requests for exemption will be reviewed and decided by the medical director. A signed DePauw Health Wellness Center immunization waiver will be kept on file at DePauw Health Wellness Center.

Students holding exemptions may be excluded from campus activities or instructed to leave campus in the event of an outbreak – on or near campus – of any of the vaccine-preventable diseases until the outbreak is over.

Further information regarding immunization requirements or exemptions may be obtained by contacting Stevie Baker-Watson, associate vice president for campus wellness at steviebaker-watson@depauw.edu .
