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.

Please know that University Health and Counseling Services is not a billing entity. (This is almost always to the advantage of the student because we do not charge at all for visits, in-house procedures or point-of-care testing.) As such, we cannot bill an insurance company -- including the Aetna Student Medical Plan for an immunization that we administer. If we administer an immunization (with the exception of a COVID-19 immunization at this time), a student must pay out of pocket, and then the student will need to submit the bill to their insurance company for reimbursement.

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.

You should upload your record to by logging onto myhealthconnect.case.edu and selecting Medical Clearances. This method is secure and places your information directly into your chart.

Filling out the online forms is required. Your documentation will not be processed unless you enter the information online and then submit the documentation. If you cannot access the online form or need to resend the documentation, please contact us.

Your online information must be verified by the supporting documentation before it can be considered part of your medical record. Health-related students are required to provide documentation of their immunization records.

Submit your immunization form by June 30 with your current information. Then, contact us to let us know that you plan to get any additional required vaccines before coming to campus. If you get a vaccine after submitting your form, contact us to update your information.

If you need to receive a vaccine at UHS, you can do so when you arrive on campus.
