Immunization Requirements

Immunization requirements for ALL UNTHSC students can be found here.  

Screening for tuberculosis is an annual requirement of all UNTHSC students. Students who have not received a vaccination against tuberculosis or who have not tested positive in the past to tuberculosis can easily be screened for tuberculosis via a skin test (PPD). Skin tests will be provided at several events on campus. This service is completely free and optional. Those who do not attend the mass screening events must get screened by their primary care provider by skin test, blood test, or chest x-ray. New students must provide 2 skin tests due to the boosting effect of latent tuberculosis. This means that new students may need to get an additional skin test after their first screening. More information can be found on the website: www.unthsc.edu/immunizations. Questions about immunization and screening requirements can be made to health@unthsc.edu.
