DU Influenza (Flu) Immunization Requirements

The Health and Counseling Center (HCC) remains committed during this public health crisis to promote student success by providing comprehensive and integrated healthcare, counseling, advocacy, health promotion, and recovery support and services.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Note

The HCC and DU recognizes that mandatory vaccination requirements may place undue burden on communities of color and those with trauma related to historical and contemporary experiences with medical care. We are relying on your compliance as we work to keep our communities safe. We have made efforts to remove barriers to care such as cost and access and follow the most rigorous scientific evidence available when providing and recommending healthcare to students. If you have questions or concerns about any aspect of the vaccination process, please reach out for support.

A list of resources and contact information listed in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion support webpage can be found here: https://www.du.edu/equity/dei-covid-19-resources

Exemptions to Influenza (Flu) Vaccination Requirement

DU recognizes that not every individual is in a position to be vaccinated against Influenza (Flu) at this time. Accordingly, DU has established a process to consider requests for certain limited exemptions to the Influenza (Flu) vaccination requirement. HCC will consider requests for exemptions for medical and non-medical reasons DU may reconsider the availability of certain exemptions based on changing conditions on campus, in the surrounding community, or the state; changes to public health guidance; and/or developments related to the Influenza (Flu) vaccines.

Similarly to our 2020 fall term, should you become ill with influenza or a similar flu-like illness, you must remain off campus for the duration of your illness to allow for a full recovery and assist in keeping our community healthy.

Medical exemptions require a letter or statement from your doctor indicating the clinically supported reason you should not receive the required vaccinations.

Personal or religious exemptions should complete the certificate of exemption form. Non-medical exemptions require a statement from the individual, or parent/guardian if the individual is under 18 years of age, stating that a vaccine is against sincerely held religious or personal beliefs. Non-medical exemptions must be renewed annually.

Non-Medical Exemption Form

You should upload your document:

  1. Log into your MyHealth portal
  2. Select “send a message/load records” on the myhealth homepage
  3. Select “new message”
  4. Select “I want to submit Immunization Records”
  5. Attach and upload your file(s)

If you are unable to upload, you may:

Please include your DU ID number, first and last name with all communications.

After HCC has reviewed your request for exemption, you will receive notification within your MyHealth portal. For questions about accessing MyHealth or for help uploading, contact info@hcc.du.edu.

 

Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS)

The University of Denver Health & Counseling Center (DU HCC) participates in the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS).  Immunizations given at the DU HCC will be entered into CIIS. Other information such as past immunization records provided to the DU HCC, gender, and the office where each shot is given will be included in the registry to be sure that your record is accurate and cannot be confused with another patient's record. Your address will also be included in the system to allow your healthcare provider to send you a card to remind you are due for an immunization. All information entered into CIIS is secure and confidential.

Under Colorado law, you can exclude your immunization information from participation. If you would like to opt out, please complete the form on the CIIS opt-out procedures page then provide a copy to CIIS as directed on the form.
