Proof of Vaccination
Students may show proof of vaccination against meningococcal disease by providing their college or university with an immunization record that shows they have been vaccinated against meningococcal disease in the last five years. Acceptable proof includes one of the following:
- a form showing the signature or stamp of a physician or his/her designee, or public health personnel that shows the month, day, and year the vaccination dose or booster was administered
- an official immunization record generated from a state or local health authority
- an official record received from school officials, including a record from another state
Copies of Immunization Records
A student may get a copy of his or her immunization records from his or her private healthcare provider. If the student is younger than 18 years of age or has consented as an adult to keep his or her immunization records in ImmTrac, the Texas Immunization Registry, he or she can request a copy by calling the Texas Immunization Information Line at 1-800-252-9152.
To register in ImmTrac
Students not registered in ImmTrac can register in ImmTrac by going to ImmTracForEveryone.com. Upon receiving their next vaccine, a student can ask the ImmTrac authorized provider to enter the information in ImmTrac. Once registered, students can request the immunization records when needed.
