A titer is a blood test that confirms immunity.

You should contact your Health provider who can provide updated vaccinations or perform a test that will check your blood for antibodies which will determine immunity. You can also have these tests done at UHS at your own expense.

Students with Case Medical Plan are fully covered for required immunizations. For those students that are not using Case Medical Plan, please check with your health insurance carrier to see what vaccines are covered and how you can be reimbursed in the event that you obtain the immunizations at UHS. A list of available vaccines and costs can be found on our Price List.

You should alert the University Health Service that the information you submitted is different than the information on your documentation. Your healthcare provider's documentation is the document of record.
