The University of Denver is committed to promoting the health and safety of the entire community. University of Denver policy and Colorado State Law require most students to show proof of immunization against measles, mumps, rubella, meningitis, influenza, and COVID-19. The University of Denver Health and Counseling Center (HCC) is responsible for facilitating student compliance with both state and university vaccination requirements.
The links below provide detailed information regarding those requirements, as well as information on where to get vaccinated and how to submit proof of immunization or requests for exemptions.
For help obtaining immunization or submitting your vaccination records, contact the HCC at 303-871-2205 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your DU ID number, first and last name with all communications.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The HCC/DU recognizes that mandatory vaccination requirements may place undue burden on communities of color and those with trauma related to historical and contemporary experiences with medical care. We are relying on your compliance as we work to keep our communities safe. We have made efforts to remove barriers to care such as cost and access and follow the most rigorous scientific evidence available when providing and recommending healthcare to students. If you have questions or concerns about any aspect of the vaccination process, please reach out for support.

Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS)
The University of Denver Health & Counseling Center participates in the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). Immunizations given at the DU HCC will be entered into CIIS. Other information such as past immunization records provided to the DU HCC, gender, and the office where each shot is given will be included in the registry to be sure that your record is accurate and cannot be confused with another patient's. Your address will also be included in the system to allow your health care provider to send you a card to remind you are due for an immunization. All information entered into CIIS is secure and confidential.
Under Colorado State Law, you can exclude your immunization information from participation. If you would like to opt out, please complete the form on the CIIS opt-out procedures page and provide a copy to CIIS as directed on the form.
