Vermont State Immunization Requirements
All Middlebury College undergraduate students must come to campus with the Immunizations Required by Vermont Law for all matriculated undergraduate students. New students must obtain a copy of their up to date immunization record and compare it with the requirements to attend college in Vermont. Missing immunizations need to be acquired before arrival for fall or February move in.
New students who are unable to acquire all required immunizations (e.g. lack availability in country, time required between doses in a series, etc.) and submit their documentation to the student health portal by the deadline (June 15 or November 15) must complete and upload a Request for Provisional Admittance to their portal. Students who do not have complete immunization records and who have not been approved for Provisional Admittance will not be allowed to move in to their residence hall and begin orientation. It is important to note that students who are approved for Provisional Admittance may be required to leave campus in the event of a disease outbreak related to their outstanding immunizations.
New students who have a physical or wellness exam scheduled before they arrive on campus should not wait until that appointment if they are missing immunizations. Calling your healthcare provider and/or local pharmacy to explore immunization options as soon as possible can avoid delays and unwanted exclusions from campus.
If you have any religious or medical exemptions, please complete the Vermont College Immunizations Exemptions Form as applicable. It is important to note that students immunization exemptions may be required to leave campus in the event of a disease outbreak related to their exemptions.

New Student Frequently Asked Questions
Q I have submitted my health portal forms but they aren't disappearing from my list, what should I do?
Scroll back up through the form and look for any red “X” marks, indicating a required field, missing information, or improperly formatted information. Once you’ve corrected your entries, the “X” will disappear and you can click Submit again.
Q I'm trying to upload required images or documents to my health portal, but they aren't going through. What should I do?
Check to see if your document(s) are too large. There is a 10 MG limit per upload to the Student Health Portal. Also check to see if you are uploading using one of the listed, accepted formats. If you have verified that both the size and format are correct you can fax the documents to 802-443-2066 as a last resort.

No, documents should be uploaded as complete, multi-page documents when necessary. Scan all existing pages into one document (less than 10 MB), and upload into the appropriate category from the Document Type drop down menu, from the Document Upload Tab. If your document is larger than 10 MB in size, split the pages into as many sections as necessary to upload them in parts ensuring that the pages are accurately numbered.
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 countries.

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, an 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.
Q I received an email saying Center for Health and Wellness offices have not received anything, but I sent in my documents. 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 or assigned the wrong Document Type. Please refer to the troubleshooting section of this web page.
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 Health Services at 802-443-5135.
Q 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 Control (CDC) 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.
Q My doctor told me I was all set, but the Center for Health and Wellness 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 their records to the Vermont State 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.

The required health forms and documents are the responsibility of each incoming student. Health Services does not provide physicals to meet pre-arrival requirements. New students are welcome to call, email, or set up a time to troubleshoot the student health portal or review their specific questions related to their health needs.
Q Why is Middlebury College excluding students who do not submit immunization records and holding residence hall room access and registration?
Middlebury College is complying with Vermont State law which requires a specific set of immunizations for undergraduates who come to our state.
