New and Incoming Students: Follow the steps below

CRITICAL: 
Due October 15th for February admission

Step One: Read the New Student Vermont Immunization Requirement Notice
  • All Middlebury College undergraduate students must comply with Vermont's Immunization Rule.
  • Obtain and review your immunization record with your healthcare provider ASAP.
  • Compare the Vermont immunization requirements with your personal immunization record. Make an appointment to receive missing immunizations over the summer.
  • Submit your immunization record via the student portal NOW. If you are missing immunizations, you must also submit/upload a Request for Provisional Admittance. This form is provided in Step Two.
  • Do not wait until you have a physical. Delays in getting immunization information to Middlebury over the summer could lead to class registration and dorm room access being held. Failure to submit these forms will result in exclusion from campus.
  • Provisional admittance and religious or medical exemptions exist; however, students who are not immunized will be asked to leave campus for an extended period of time in the event of a disease outbreak.
  • Early action and carefully following the instructions will avoid delays and inconvenience on arrival day and/or possible exclusion from campus. Refer to our instructions for new students.

Immunization FAQs

I am an international student having difficulty accessing immunization records. What should I do?

Follow the instructions and upload any records (must be in English) that are available, along with the Request for Provisional Admittance form that outlines a plan for when any missing vaccines can be received.  In some cases, students without evidence of immunization can submit blood test results that show immunity against varicella, measles, mumps, rubella, and hepatitis B.  Ask your doctor if these tests are available and upload the results.  Get as many of the required immunizations as possible and upload your immunization record (in English) and/ or the Request for Provisional Admittance form prior to arrival.  If you get some immunizations just prior to arrival, bring a copy of your updated immunization record with you.

Ideally, testing and/or immunization happens prior to arrival at Middlebury; however, Parton Health Center staff will work with ISSS and international students who need help receiving vaccines that may be difficult to receive in their home country.

I don’t have any immunization records, but I think I got shots. What should I do?

In some cases, students without evidence of immunization can submit blood test results that show immunity against varicella, measles, mumps, rubella, and hepatitis B. Ask your doctor if these tests are available and upload the results.

Get as many of the required immunizations as possible and upload your immunization record (in English) and/ or the Request for Provisional Admittance form, prior to arrival. If you get some immunizations just prior to arrival, bring a copy of your updated immunization record with you.

What if I am missing an immunization(s)?

You can submit blood test results that show immunity against varicella, measles, mumps, rubella, and hepatitis B or get the missing immunizations at your healthcare provider’s office, and urgent care center or even a pharmacy in some states. Be sure to get and make copies of the immunization and upload them to Parton via the portal. It is always a good idea to bring a copy with you, as well.

I got a notice that Parton has not received anything, but I sent it in. What should I do?

There are a variety of issues that can occur when trying to upload documents. Sometimes, documents are too big for uploading, or they may have been uploaded to the wrong section. Please refer to the troubleshooting section of this webpage.

If there is an upload link available on your portal page, you can try to upload the document again.  If you’re still stuck, call the Parton Portal Hotline at 802-443-5112, and leave a message.  Your call will be answered in 1-2 business days.

My immunization dates are really close but are not consistent with the Vermont Rule. What should I do?

The Vermont immunization requirements are consistent with current recommendations by the Centers for Disease (CDC) Control Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. In order for you to be compliant with the Vermont immunization rule, you must meet these date recommendations. 

If you do not, you can ask your healthcare provider to do a blood test to see if you have immunity, or simply have another dose of the immunization. We strongly encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider and resolve the issue as soon as possible. Please resubmit any new information as soon as possible.

My doctor told me I was all set, but Parton is telling me I am not. Why, and what should I do?

The most common reason for students being told that they are not in compliance with Vermont immunization law is that the healthcare provider who reviewed their immunization record did not compare requirements provided in the first-year document on immunization requirements. Though the student has received immunizations, they were not administered in a manner consistent with current recommendations by the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

In order for you to be compliant with the Vermont immunization rule, you must meet the date recommendations. If you do not, you can ask your healthcare provider to do a blood test to see if you have immunity, or simply have another dose of the immunization. We strongly encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider and resolve the issue as soon as possible.  Please resubmit any new information as soon as possible.

Can’t Parton figure this out for me?

No, this is a requirement for all incoming students.  The Parton medical staff provides comprehensive acute health care for Middlebury students. We assist them in meeting their health needs and encourage healthy choices and health maintenance. The staff works hard in the summer to process all incoming student health and immunization forms. Once a semester begins, staff must be focused on taking care of the students on campus.

Why is Middlebury College excluding students who do not submit immunization records and holding dorm room access and registration?

Middlebury College is complying with Vermont law.
