The University of Colorado School of Medicine utilizes MyRecordTracker for the maintenance of student immunization records. Students receive an email that directs them to upload their immunizations, the service reviews and approves immunizations for completeness. The school is sent a report of student compliance.
Newly accepted student should have all documents of immunizations required readily available, to be uploaded once they receive the MyRecordTracker activation link.
MEASLES, MUMPS, RUBELLA
Documentation of 2 shots
or serologies is required. Measles,
mumps and rubella require individual titers.
List either the two dates of
the MMRs received or the individual
titer dates and results. The first MMR
must have been received on or after your first birthday and there must be at
least 28 days between the first and second MMR.
If received prior to your first birthday or there is less than 28 days
between the two MMRs received, you are
required to have another MMR or show proof of positive titers.
If you are in the
process of receiving your Hep B immunizations for the first time, you are
required to have the three-shot series and also provide the date and result of a
positive HBSAB titer 1 month after the third dose. If the 3-dose series is needed, then the doses
should be in a 0, 1, 6 month interval and then a titer done 1 month after
the last dose. If immunity is not
present, then another 3-dose series must be done followed by another
titer. If after 6 doses no immunity is
present, then the student is considered a “non-responder” and no further
testing or immunization is required. However, a doctor's note indicating this is required.
List the dates of the
four-shot childhood series. Adults, who
had 1 or 2 IPV doses and no documentation of childhood series, will need to
complete a total of 3 doses. Therefore,
if they had 2, they would need an additional 1 adult catch-up dose. International Students are required to get
the 3 dose series.
list the date (year) you had varicella (chicken pox), or the titer date and
result or dates vaccine received. A
negative titer requires two vaccines placed one month apart.
vaccination, a tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) is required for all
healthcare workers renewable every 10 years.
documented doses of TD are required.
Primary vaccination of previously unvaccinated adults consists of three
doses of adult tetanus-diphtheria toxoid (Td): 4-6 weeks should separate the
first and second dose; the third dose should be administered 6-12 months after
the second. Tdap is also required as the
final dose or within 5 years of entry.
TUBERCULIN SKIN TEST
(Required Mantoux PPD):
All students are required to have a PPD Annually. All skin tests
need to be read within 48 -72 hours or another test must be done. Please list the dates and results for all
PPD’s received. Instead of a PPD, it is
acceptable to annually provide negative QuantiFERON gold blood test results for students who had a Bacilli Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine as a child.
If the PPD is positive (10mm and above) a
chest x-ray is required, including
the x-ray date along with a copy of the physician’s report to x-ray. Reports older than one year will be accepted as long as you
have completed the full INH treatment and have been symptom free for one year.
If you did not complete the full treatment, you are required to provide negative
QuantiFERON gold blood test results annually.
Students are required to provide proof of immunization annually, on MyRecordTracker no later than November 1st.
