Required Health History (Medications, Allergies, Medical Conditions, Family History, etc)

All students are required to complete the Health History section located in the UD Health Portal. Providing this information helps ensure appropriate and individualized care at Student Health.

This information can be updated at any time should your health history change.

Required Tuberculosis (TB) Screening

All incoming students must complete a tuberculosis screening questionnaire available in the “Medical Clearances” section of their UD Health Portal.

Additional requirements for TB screening for students with identified risk factors are available in this section of the portal.

TB blood tests are strongly recommended for any student who has received the BCG vaccine or who has lived or spent time in an area with a high incidence of TB.

Required Immunizations

The University of Delaware requires the following vaccines for students:

  • Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) – 2 doses after age 12 months, spaced at least 28 days apart
  • Meningococcal ACWY – 1 dose after age 16 for students living on campus
  • COVID-19 – Primary series and booster when eligible

All incoming students must submit documentation of the required immunizations specified above. We encourage you to submit your entire vaccine record so that your health information is accurate.

Students may submit UD’s immunization form or an official copy of their immunization records from their healthcare provider. (See instructions below)

Specific academic programs may have additional immunization requirements.
