Wednesday, June 8, 2022

North Carolina state law (General Statutes §130A 152–157) requires that all students entering college present a certificate of immunization that documents that the student has received all immunizations required by law. While your state or country of origin may have different immunization requirements, you must comply with North Carolina laws and Duke requirements.

MANDATORY Steps for Immunization Compliance:

STEP 1: Complete the online Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire BY CLICKING HERE.

STEP 2: You will receive an email after completing this questionnaire. Print the TB Screening Questionnaire and follow the instructions provided.

STEP 3: Have a doctor’s office, clinic or health department complete the Mandatory Immunization Requirements Form. FORMS CANNOT BE SIGNED BY FAMILY MEMBERS.

STEP 4:

Log into the Student Health Gateway https://shc.duhs.duke.edu

  • Click “Medical Clearances.” Under “Items Required for Clearance”, enter the date(s) you received your vaccines under each update button.
  • Click on the “Immunization Requirements Form” update button and upload your signed Mandatory Immunization Form and your TB Screening Questionnaire (along with any additional testing or documents if applicable).
  • Fax to 1-919-681-7386 only if unable to upload.

STEP 5: Monitor your Duke Email. Communications regarding your compliance status can be found by logging into the Student Health Gateway and clicking on “Messages” on the left tool bar. Your Duke email will notify you when a new message has been sent.

STEP 6: Register after July 1 for your MyChart accounts. For further assistance, please on the help button.

IMPORTANT!

Keep a copy of all forms and correspondence for your records and bring them with you. This will help resolve any problems that may arise.

Forms must be signed by your clinician and received by Duke Student Health by June 15.

You will not receive your room key on Move-In Day if requirements are not met. Failure to meet requirements may lead to withdrawal from classes and limited access to Duke resources.

You may obtain any needed immunizations from your private physician, local health department or Duke Student Health Services.
