Coronavirus COVID-19 Updates: uc.edu/publichealth
The health and safety of the university community is a priority at UC. We make every effort to ensure that the university is proactive at enhancing the health and well-being of our community. While the immunization requirement alone is unable to stop outbreaks, medical evidence shows that higher levels of immunization among a population leads to greater protection and less severe symptoms should an outbreak occur.
The immunization requirements for UC are based on recommendations from:
All incoming undergraduate, graduate and professional students attending main campus, UC Blue Ash, and UC Clermont must comply with this policy.
Required immunizations for all incoming general population undergraduate, graduate and professional students attending main campus (East and/or West campus), UC Blue Ash and UC Clermont:
* A titer is a laboratory test that measures the presence and amount of antibodies in blood. A titer may be used to prove immunity to disease.
Review the University Health Service (UHS) Immunization web page to see which immunizations you are required to have. Go to Bearcats Health App and use your UC username and password to access your account.
Once in the Bearcats Health App system, download and print the standardized immunization form from their site (this can also be found on the UHS Immunization web page). You must use this form, no other forms will be accepted by the system. DO NOT include outside documents. Your form will be rejected by the system if outside documents are attached.
You can get the required immunizations through your medical provider or University Health Services (513-556-2564). Have your medical provider complete, sign, and stamp the form.
Upload your completed form through your Bearcats Health App online account. You will be notified within your account dashboard if you are missing items, or if you are fully compliant.
