International Students

The University of Maryland requires International Students to:

  1. Complete and submit our Immunization form

  2. Complete the online Tuberculosis Risk Screening by going to www.myuhc.umd.edu or fill in Section D of the University of Maryland Immunization Record Form. If any response is "YES", the student is required to have a Quantiferon Gold or T-Spot test.  This test MUST be performed in the United States. We will not accept any TB blood tests from other countries.

  3. Bring a copy of their lab report for the Quantiferon Gold test with them to the International Student Orientation or the test will need to be done at the University Health Center, by appointment.

  4. Provide proof of 2 doses of the MMR vaccine; the first must be after age 1 year, and the second is normally after age 4.

International students can also have 2 adult doses of MMR if they do not have records of  previous MMRs and they must be at least one month apart.

If vaccine dates are not available, your provider can perform a measles, mumps, and rubella titer (blood test) to verify positive immunity. We will require a copy of the lab report if titers are to be considered as verification.

About the Meningococcal Vaccine

A meningococcal vaccine is available for protection against most strains of the bacteria that causes meningitis. Meningitis is the inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord that is fatal in 10 to 15 percent of the cases. Though the disease is rare, college students living in dormitories and individuals with weak immune systems can be more susceptible to the disease. The immunization requires one injection in the arm and is 85 to 90 percent protective against strains A, C, Y and W-135, but not type B. Most Meningococcal diseases in the U.S. are caused by types B or C. A booster is recommended after three to five years, if still at higher risk. 

About Meningitis B Vaccine

Though uncommon, MenB disease is very serious. While the MCV4 vaccine protects against serogroups A, C, W and Y of meningococcal disease, it does not protect against meningococcal B disease. Alternately, MenB vaccine does not protect against serogroups A, C, Y, and W.

Recently, there have been outbreaks of MenB at several colleges and universities.  Therefore, the University of Maryland strongly recommends receiving the Meningitis B vaccine series.  

Influenza/Flu Vaccine Information

Quadrivalent Vaccine: Students, Faculty/Staff, and Visitors call (301) 314-8184 to schedule an appointment.

The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) covers the flu vaccine 100% with no copay.  

We can bill TRICARE Standard and the following EPO and PPO plans: Care First Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna and United Healthcare. If you do not have one of the listed insurance plans, please check your insurance company to verify your coverage (most insurance companies have a toll-free number located on the back of the card).

We can submit the bill to your insurance, upon request, if you present your insurance card prior to your appointment, though we can't guarantee that they will pay for the vaccine if we are not in the plan network.  If the claim is denied, you would receive a subsequent bill for the vaccine and administration.
