NEW ONLINE Medical Information Submission Process For Incoming Truman Students
Truman State University's Student Health Center and University Counseling services, operated in partnership with Complete Family Medicine, a service of Hannibal Regional - a not-for-profit health system, are available to meet your medical and mental health needs. The Student Health Center assists the University in obtaining the necessary immunization information required by the state of Missouri.
To avoid delays, ALL NEW students (first year and transfer students for FALL 2022) must use the below link to submit their online health history, immunization cards, and insurance information PRIOR to June 1, 2022.
Online Health History Form
What you will need in order to complete the online health history form application:
- Electronic copy of the FRONT and BACK of insurance cards to submit
- Electronic copy of Immunization Records (for questions about required immunizations, see below list)
If you have any questions or concerns about the online submission process, please contact the Student Heath Center at 660-785-4182 or at email@example.com.
- Per Missouri Statute 174.335, ALL students residing in residence halls, university apartments and any fraternity or sorority housing MUST have received their Meningitis A, C, Y and W vaccine (Menactra or Menveo) PRIOR to move in. The vaccine must have been given within the past five years and on or after the student’s 16th birthday. Failure to comply with this state requirement will result in delays in moving into the student’s housing.
- Truman policy also requires proof of immunization against measles, mumps and rubella - often given together as the MMR vaccine. This is a series with the first shot given at or after age one year and the second given at least 28 days after the first one. Individuals opting out of this immunization for medical reasons must provide titer results documenting immune status.
- Per Missouri Statute 199.290, all new students are screened for tuberculosis. Truman’s screening is located on the enclosed Medical History Form. The Missouri law states that, “Any entering student of an institution of higher education in Missouri who does not comply with the targeted testing program shall not be permitted to maintain enrollment in the subsequent semester at such institution.” Therefore, failure to complete the Medical History form in full, including the TB screening, will result in a hold on the student’s registration for second semester classes.
Health Supplies You Should Bring With You To School
Below is a list of basic health supplies which we recommend that you should bring with you to college.
