Immunization Requirements

Submit your immunization history/get immunizations

As a new student at Calvin College, you are required to submit your immunization history to health services. To keep our campus healthy, certain immunizations are required.

How to submit your immunization history

You can track them down through:

  • Your family physician
  • Your high school or previous college
  • Your branch of military service

To submit your immunization history, you must first:

  • Enter your immunization dates electronically via our Online Student Health portal.
  • Mail or fax an official copy of your immunization reords to Health Services for verification. Paper copies will be accepted only after you have entered your immunizations online.

Complete your immunizations

We encourage you to meet with your primary provider to complete vaccinations prior to coming to Calvin College to receive the best financial coverage. If you would like to have your vaccines or blood titers completed at Health Services once you arrive on campus, please call us at (616) 526-6187 to schedule an appointment. We will bill your insurance for you, but cannot guarantee reimbursement. We strongly recommend contacting your insurance company prior to your visit here to confirm your beneifts and coverage at the Health Center. Bring your insurance card to every appointment.

Deadlines

For all new, transfer and re-admitted students, your health requirements must be complete by October 1st for Fall enrollment, and February 1st for Spring enrollment. After that time, a non-refundable $50 fine will be assessed to your account, and registration for future classes could be placed on hold.

Tuberculosis screening

Before you start classes at Calvin, complete a tuberculosis self-screening using our Online Student Health tool. If you fall into a high-risk group for tuberculosis, you must have a tuberculosis test completed. You may do this with your primary care provider, or at health services upon arrival to campus.
