Submitting your immunization records:
Important! Submission of your immunization information is a 3-step process. Please follow the instructions carefully and complete each step in the following order to ensure that your records are processed without delays.
Step 1. See Your Healthcare Provider
Have your medical provider complete the Immunization Worksheet. Please Note: The immunization Worksheet must include your provider's signature with title and copies your original immunization records.
Step 2. Enter your immunizations online.
Enter the information on the Immunization Worksheet into the online Immunizations form, as directed. After you complete the online immunizations form, you can upload your Immunization Worksheet and all other related documents to Student Health Service (SHS).
Step 3. Prepare your records for upload.
You can upload your immunization records, as well as the Immunization Worksheet but they must be in PDF format. If you cannot do this you can alternately fax them. Please fax to 215-746-0909.
IMPORTANT! Please DO NOT upload or fax your records until you finish entering your information online. Sending your records to us before entering them online will greatly delay processing.
Note: If you get a message indicating that the site cannot locate your student information, please try back in a few days. It sometimes takes time for the information to load into our systems from the registration system. If the problem persists, or if you have any problems please feel free to contact the Immunization Compliance Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 215 746 3535 option #4.
