Do you need a copy of your immunization records from UHS? Please follow instructions at Health Records.
All incoming students are expected to submit their immunization records, preferably at least 10 days before classes begin.
This page provides instructions.
Instructions for submitting immunization records:
Students, except international students, enter their records online through Wolverine Access. Documents cannot be uploaded.
First, prepare by gathering all records and plan to enter them at one time. This is important because you can submit only once, and you cannot make changes in Wolverine Access after submission. (To document immunizations after submission, see instructions below.) Requested information includes:
- Student’s name, address, phone number, marital status, ethnicity and race
- Student’s parent/s’ names
- All immunizations received and dates received. If you do not know month or day of an immunization, enter what you know in ”MM/DD/YYYY" format, or you may leave date fields blank entirely.
When entering, follow these tips:
- Be sure entries are as accurate as possible. There is no “review and confirm all entries” step prior to submission.
- Do not use the Back button. Instead, use in-system navigation.
- If you do not find a match for your immunization, enter it in the "Other" section at the end of the form. Example: If you received "meningitis conjugate" vaccine, enter it in the "Other" section.
- We recommend that you print or take a screen shot of each page individually, for your reference.
- Keep your original records. You are the "owner" of your records, so please plan to keep your records and give copies to others as needed.
When you are ready to enter records, click the button below and FOLLOW THIS SEQUENCE (otherwise you may not find the form in Wolverine Access):
1. Choose Student Business
2. Choose Student Center
3. Choose Personal Information
4. Choose Immunizations (at bottom left)

Frequently asked questions about submitting immunization records:
Why should I submit my immunization records? University Health Service (UHS) uses immunization records to provide health care to students. In addition, students often need their immunization records for academic programs, volunteer activities and travel.
What if I cannot submit my records at least 30 days before classes start? If you cannot submit records early, you may submit them later.
Are official copies of my records necessary? No, it's not necessary to provide official copies. A photocopy of your records will meet our needs. Also, please keep your records so you can "own" your health information and give copies to others as needed.
How can I find my immunization records? Contact your health care provider(s), high school or other institutions where immunizations were required.
How can I find out if I've had all recommended immunizations? Ask your health care provider to review your records, determine any needs (immunity against many diseases on the form can be determined through tests) and provide recommended immunizations.
