Hepatitis B Immunity Status: Admissions Requirement
The California Health and Safety code requires first time enrollees at the University of California who are 18 years of age or younger to provide a statement of immunization status for the Hepatitis B virus prior to enrollment.
Students who need to fulfill this requirement will need to fill out the online Hepatitis B Immunity Statement. In order to complete your immunity statement, you will need to document your full record of Hepatitis B virus vaccinations. This can be done in several different ways:
- If you have received immunization for Hepatitis B (a series of 3 vaccination shots), you will need to provide the dates of each immunization along with the name, address, and phone number of the provider who administered the injections.
- Students who have known immunity due to prior infection or possess an antibody titer showing immunity will need the date of illness/titer, and the name of the treating provider along with his/her address and phone number.
If your medical condition is such that receiving the Hepatitis B immunization series is not considered safe, please have your health care provider submit a written statement to:
Student Health and Counseling Services, ATTN: Hepatitis B Requirement,
University of California, One Shields Ave,
Davis, CA 95616-8711.
- If receiving this immunization is contrary to your beliefs, you have the opportunity to indicate this on the immunity statement.
Incoming students can access the Hepatitis B Immunity Statement through MyAdmissions (new students only).
If you are a continuing student and are attempting to register for classes and you have a hold on your account, you may register for the current term but will be unable to add or drop classes until your immunity statement is complete.
