If you have submitted your records and your grid is has not been updated after 24 business hours, please contact DePaul Central.

You may try contacting your previous health care providers or schools to locate your records.

If you cannot locate your records, a blood titer test can show your immunity to Measles, Mumps, or Rubella. Contact your health care provider for further information about blood titer tests. You will need to provide our office with a copy of the lab reports, if they are positive. If you cannot locate a record of your current Tetanus/Diphtheria vaccination, you will need to receive a new inoculation.

Students without a health care provider may visit Sage Medical Group, affiliated with DePaul University and located at: 1150 West Fullerton Avenue. They can be reached at (773) 549-7757.

If you are unable to receive your vaccinations before needing to enroll in classes, please contact DePaul Central to discuss your options.

DePaul did not officially begin recording students' immunization records until Winter of 2006. Students who were admitted prior to the Winter 2006 term and maintained continuous enrollment are not required to have immunization records on file. Those students with gaps in enrollment, students in campus housing or students that have been readmitted since this time must submit their immunization records. If you have any questions about these requirements, please contact DePaul Central.
