Immunization Requirements

What is the correct format for submitting my immunization record?

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has recently adopted the use of the AAMC standardized immunization form, part of our requirements for application as a visiting medical student. All immunization records must be translated into English.

What immunizations are required by JHUSOM?

For health-related questions when completing this form, please contact University Health Services directly; University Health Services staff review all completed applications. Additional information can also be found on the standardized immunization page on the AAMC website.

JHUSOM requires vaccination for COVID-19 for all on-campus students. The University requires students submit documentation of a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved vaccine. Please include vaccination information on the AAMC immunization form under the section for additional comments on page two.

What is the policy for the influenza vaccination?

Included in the immunization record form is the requirement for a yearly influenza vaccination. Please see the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine flu vaccination requirements for more information.

How will I know if my immunization record form is accepted?

The immunization record form is sent to University Health Services (UHS) for review.  UHS will only contact you by email if your immunization record form is incomplete; if you do not receive an email from UHS, your immunization record form has been approved.  If UHS contacts you regarding an incomplete application, it is your responsibility to submit the missing information directly to UHS (NOT the Visiting Student Coordinator) in order to receive clearance to begin your elective.  When UHS has cleared you to start your elective, UHS will notify the Visiting Student Coordinator.  You will not be allowed to begin your rotation without this clearance.
