COVID Vaccine Requirement

COVID vaccination is required for all students who will be on campus for any reason (excluding those with religious or health exemptions).  Students attending fall classes must submit their COVID-19 vaccination or exemption through the Student Health Web Portal no later than July 15.

  • Due to the large volume of records being received, please allow 7-10 business days for processing.  You can check the status of your submission in the Web Portal under the "My Prolife" tab, "Immun. History". Please do not submit records multiple times. Student Health will send you a secure message through the Portal if there is an issue with your submission. Please do not ignore these messages.
  • If you receive an error message when logging into the Portal, please allow up to 1-3 business days after accepting your offer of admission to log in.  Student Health must receive your V# and eID from Records and Registration before you can access the Portal.  Error messages may also be due to improper file uploads.  Please only submit PDF or JPEG files no larger than 5 MB.
  • For more information, visit One VCU's Covid Vaccine FAQs page for students.
  • Student Health shares records of student compliance with COVID vaccination requirements, including records of vaccination or of medical or religious exemptions, with university administration for the purpose of managing health and safety protocols. Any record of the provision of health services, however, remains confidential in a student's health record at Student Health, consistent with applicable laws and regulations.

I lost my vaccination card. How do I go about getting a copy of my record?  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend taking a photo of both sides of the card as a back up, in case you lose it. But if it is already lost, here are recommendations from the CDC:

  • Contact your vaccination provider directly to access your vaccination record.
  • If you can’t reach the vaccination provider, contact your state health department’s immunization information system.
  • If you enrolled in v-safe or VaxText, you can access your vaccination information through those tools.
  • If you have made every effort to receive a copy of your vaccination card and still need a second dose, talk to a vaccination provider.

Free Flu Vaccines

Free flu shots will be available to students by appointment only in the fall.  We will update our website once flu shots are available.  At that time, you can call the Monroe Park Campus at 804-827-8047 or the Health Sciences (MCV) Campus at 804-828-9220 to schedule an appointment.

The flu vaccine is safe, effective, and does not cause the flu.  All students are encouraged to complete the flu vaccine, especially those at high-risk for flu complications (eg. those with asthma, diabetes, HIV, etc.).

Gardasil (HPV) Vaccines

The human papillomavirus or HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection.  HPV infections can lead to genital warts or certain cancers, including cervical cancer and anal cancer.  Protect yourself by completing the Gardasil (HPV) vaccine series (3 shots over 6 months).  To find out if you are eligible for free or discounted Gardasil vaccine, call Student Health to schedule an immunization appointment.

Accessing the Web Portal

Students are encouraged to use the Student Health Web Portal to submit vaccine records.

If you receive an error message when logging into the Portal, please allow up to 1-3 business days after accepting your offer of admission to log in.  Student Health receives your information from Records and Registration, so you will need to be assigned a V# and eID in order to access the Web Portal. 

Many error messages are due to improper file format or size.  Please ensure your file is in PDF or JPEG format and no more than 5 MB in size.

If you continue to have problems using the Portal, contact Student Health Immunizations at 804-827-8047.

Need A Copy of Your Immunization Record?

Students who have submitted a copy of their vaccine records to Student Health may view and/or print their records and vaccine titers at their convenience through the Student Health Web Portal.  Go to the "My Profile" tab, then choose "Immun. History".
