Immunizations are required for students whose academic program has a clinical (practicum or externship) component. Immunization requirements are a clinical site requirement and failure to complete or maintain all required immunizations may result in loss of clinical placement. If students are unable to complete the required clinical component of their program, they may not be able to satisfy graduation requirements.
What immunizations do I need?
The School of Allied Health has standardized immunization requirements for all academic programs with a clinical (practicum) component. Students are typically required to show proof of immunity either at the time of program selection or show proof of immunization prior to registration. Students are required to show proof of the following immunizations:
- Rubella/Rubeola/Mumps Vaccine or Titer
- Varicella (Chicken Pox) Vaccine or Titer
- Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis Vaccine
- Hepatitis B Vaccination Series AND Hepatitis B Immunity Titer
- Hepatitis A Vaccination Series
- Proof of freedom from active Tuberculosis
- Annual Influenza Vaccine
How do I show proof of immunizations?
All documents must be uploaded to the UAA SHCC Student Health Portal (ualaskaa.medicatconnect.com), or brought in person to the SHCC. Student Health Center professionals will verify that immunizations are complete according to School of Allied Health requirements. Immunization records must then be printed from the Student Health Portal website and submitted to your program contact.
Immunizations may be completed with your preferred medical provider or at the Student Health and Counseling Center (SHCC) for a reduced rate. https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/studenthealth
