Immunization Records

To aid the university in maintaining a healthy and safe environment, all students, faculty and staff are required to provide their vaccination status. Please review all the required immunizations and submit your records below.

Vaccine preventable diseases remain present on American college campuses. In an effort to provide the safest possible environment for Bellarmine University students, faculty and staff, the Bellarmine University Health Services Office requires the following immunization requirements for all community members in addition to a completed Health History Form for students. These requirements are based on recommendations from the American College Health Association and the Center for Disease Control.

Please note that some Bellarmine University programs, such as Nursing and Physical Therapy, have their own requirements.
