TO :            All MSW Foundation Day Students
                Autumn Quarter 2009

FROM:           Cheryl Yates (112 D, 543-8618,dancin1@u.washington.edu)

RE :            Meeting the University of Washington’s Immunization Requirements

All incoming health sciences students must show documentation of protection against several vaccine-
preventable diseases. The requirements and the process for achieving compliance are summarized at the
website http://hallhealth.washington.edu/hsi . A downloadable brochure at this site entitled “2009-2010
Required Immunizations for Health Sciences Students at the University of Washington” also contains this
information. Students who do not achieve compliance with all the requirements may not be allowed to start
Practicum, or registration may be blocked. This could adversely affect completion of necessary coursework
or jeopardize future financial aid.

Please note that a one-time $275 health fee covers costs of all required immunization updates during the
course of the curriculum. It does not need to be paid in advance of the initial immunization appointment.
Detailed information about the health fee is available on the above mentioned website, as is another
downloadable brochure on this topic.

Hall Health Primary Care Center (HHPCC), the University’s student health service, works with the HSIP to
provide immunization and counseling services that assist students in achieving and maintaining compliance.
This means that students who have paid the health fee incur no additional charges for health fee authorized
services provided by HHPCC to assist them with meeting the HSIP requirements.
Students must be registered as patients at HHPCC prior to receiving these services.

    What you need to do:
       1. Download, complete, and sign the top portion of the 2-sided form entitled “2009-2010
           REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS FOR HEALTH SCIENCE PROGRAMS”.
       2. Obtain copies of your immunization records or other supporting documentation per the
           brochure/information on the website. Some of the places you may want to check for records
           includes: physicians’ offices, other schools’ student health service clinics, or an employee health
           clinic if you have been working or volunteering in a health care facility. NOTE: always keep a
           copy of your documentation for your personal records.
       3. If you prefer, you may have your health care provider complete the 2-sided form. Each section
           must be verified and initialed by the provider, along with the identifying information at the
           bottom of the reverse side. If you choose this option, it is still recommended that you bring
           supporting documentation to your appointment, so that any questions about the information your
           provider supplied can be clarified if needed.
       4. Download, complete, and send to HHPCC the pre-registration form from the HSIP section of
           the HHPCC website. The insurance section may be left blank if you do not have this
           information. NOTE: This MUST BE DONE prior to your appointment date, and preferably AS
           SOON AS POSSIBLE; your appointment may have to be rescheduled if you fail to pre-register.
        5. Attend the immunization appointment at the time and date noted below; bring the 2-sided
            “Required Immunizations” form, and any documentation you obtained. If you already received
            the required immunizations elsewhere, please DO NOT MAIL OR FAX
            DOCUMENTATION TO THE IMMUNIZATION CLINIC OR TO THE SCHOOL OF
            SOCIAL WORK PRACTICUM OFFICE. All documentation of immunizations and tests
            must be provided in person during the immunization appointment.
        6. Attend all follow-up immunization appointments as instructed by the clinic staff (number of
            follow-ups varies from individual to individual).
The School of Social Work has already scheduled immunization review appointments for your class for
three different dates. The first group will be seen on Monday, September 21. The second group will be
seen on Tuesday, September 22, and the third group will be seen on Friday, September 25, The location
of ALL clinics is in the HEALTH SCIENCES BUILDING,T-Wing, room T-365. NOT Hall Health.

Contact information for the HSIP is provided in the brochures for those who have specific questions about
the immunization requirements.
        Special Instructions: If you were in a practicum site last year where you were required to meet
immunization requirements for the UW/School of Social Work, please contact the HSIP about your specific
update requirements for this academic year. TB tests are required annually and may be taken care of on a
drop-in basis. Once you start your placement, if you do not continue the requirements on schedule you and
your Practicum Instructor will be notified that you may not continue in your placement and you will NOT
receive credit for your practicum course. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns or if you
are having particular difficulty contacting the HSIP staff.
