* The Tulane Immunization Form serves as a guideline for students to gather all immunization records in one step. However, using the form is not mandatory. As an alternative to using this form, you can submit proof of these vaccinations from your external healthcare provider by uploading them to the Patient Portal .



Immunizations at the Health Center

We recommend that students receive all required vaccines before arriving on campus as a first-time student; however, when needed, the Health Center offers most required immunizations and tuberculosis testing by appointment.
