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 2016-2017 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, 2016. 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 October 1, 2016, 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.

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.

The UMW Student Health Center offers the measles ($35) as well as other routine immunizations at cost. Call (540) 654-1040 to check if your immunizations are up to date or to schedule an appointment
