Immunization and Health Forms
All students, full time and part time, graduate and undergraduate, must submit an immunization record.*
What are the requirements?
The following requirements are based on The Connecticut Department of Public Health. The state of Connecticut mandates that all students supply the following information:
- COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are strongly recommended, but not required, for University of Hartford students, faculty, and staff. This decision from UHart's COVID Steering Committee comes after much thoughtful discussion, the continued monitoring of public health conditions locally and beyond, and consultation with our state, education, and health care partners. The State Department of Public Health has opted not to add the COVID vaccine to its list of required vaccinations for schooling, including K–12, and Connecticut state colleges and universities are not requiring vaccination. Vaccine status does not need to be updated with the University at this time.
- All students must show proof of two MMR vaccines (measles, mumps, rubella).
Individuals are exempt if born before Dec. 31, 1956.
- All students and transfer students beginning Jan 1, 2010 must show proof of two varicella (chicken pox) vaccines. (Individuals born in the United States before Jan. 1, 1980 are exempt)
- Proof of Meningococcal vaccination (Menactra) within five years of entry to the University is required for all residential students prior to room assignment. No student may move into campus housing until this requirement is met. Even if not living on-campus, we strongly recommend that all students be vaccinated against this disease. If it has been more than five years since your immunization, you will need a booster shot.

Science continues to show that the vaccine is safe, effective, and the best way to prevent the spread of disease:
- Vaccinations will help protect you from getting sick and will help build immunity to help stop the spread of diseases on-campus.
- Vaccines also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get catch the virus.
- Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk for severe illnesses.
Yes! UHart provides clinics for Flu shots and COVID vaccines for the first, second, and booster doses throughout the year.
