Welcome to the University of Alaska Fairbanks
The Student Health and Counseling Center is here to help you.
Taking care of your medical health and your mental health are our first priority. Providing us with a little bit of information about you, will assist us in better meeting your needs. The health inventory and immunization form should be turned in to the Center prior to your arrival or upon your arrival.
Required Immunizations : Proof of 2 MMRs (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) Current Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria & Pertusis booster) within last 10 years, and a current PPD (Tuberculosis Skin Test) in the last year.
Our Health Center provides these required immunizations and students can receive them when they arrive if they have not received them prior to arrival.
Tdap (Tetanus,Diphtheria & Pertusis booster) $50 (prices subject to change without notice)
PPD (Tuberculosis Skin Test) $10
Other items can be checked for immunity by having a simple blood draw done, such as
Varicella (chicken pox)
Hep A & B
If you need an exemption for immunizations, please find these forms on the FORMS link to the left.
The HIPAA law protects health and medical related information and is very different than a FERPA release generally signed at the Bursar's Office. HIPAA release of information has to be signed by students to allow parents access to medical or counseling information.
