New to UMW this fall?

Health Information, Immunization and Tuberculosis Screening forms are required for full-time undergraduate students:

UMW Health History, Immunization and TB Screening forms 2015-2016 are located under the forms section to the left. The Health Information form is to be completed by the student or guardian. The Immunization and Tuberculosis Screening sections need to be verified and signed by a healthcare provider. All forms need to be completed and submitted to the Student Health Center by August 1, 2015. We appreciate that August is a busy time as you get ready for University. August 1st is our preferred submission date but if you need the extra time, we ask that you submit no later than August 31st. If your completed forms are not received by November 30, 2015, your account will be placed on hold preventing you from obtaining fall grades and registering for spring classes. Please call (540) 654-1040 for questions.

Allergy Shots

Students wanting to continue their allergy shots while at UMW will need to read and sign the updated UMW Allergy Shot Clinic Policy and sign the Informed Patient Consent as well as have their Allergist review and sign the Referring Allergist Agreement prior to receiving injections at the UMW Allergy Clinic. Once completed appointments need to be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance Monday-Friday between 9:00 AM and 3:30 PM. The UMW Allergy Clinic will accept and house serum prior to receiving the Referring Allergist Agreement. More information can be found on the Allergy Information page.

 

Measles importation infographic: Map of the world with arrows from Asia, Africa, Europe, Central and South America pointing to the US. When measles happens anywhere in the world, it can travel to the US and spread. Make sure you and your family members are up to date on your measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, including before traveling abroad. Ask your doctor if everyone has received all recommended doses of MMR for best protection against measles. Get vaccinated; prevent and stop measles outbreaks. http://www.cdc.gov/features/measles
