Student Health has the primary series already on record.  

If a student receives their bivalent booster at Occupational Health or at Student Health, then Student Health will also have access to those records. 

If a student receives their vaccine outside of VUMC, then please submit vaccine documentation that includes vaccine type and date administered by January 15, 2023 to the Student Health Portal or Student Health fax: 615-343-0047 Attn:  Kelby Mahan, LPN.

If you have previously been approved for an exemption from COVID vaccination, you do not need to resubmit a request.  However, students who need to file new exemptions can do so by completing the redcap survey by December 1, 2022.  All requests are reviewed by a multi-disciplinary team at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
