Providing Evidence of Vaccinations and Previous COVID-19 Diagnoses

Incoming students should submit documentation of vaccinations through the Immunizations Portal, MedProctor, prior to August 2, 2021. 

You should also use MedProctor to submit COVID-19 vaccinations and previous COVID-19 diagnoses. The MedProctor Portal is used to verify exemptions to the Miami COVID-19 testing program, and to determine when students are eligible to return to the pool of wide-net and surveillance testing. By uploading your documentation, you are allowing your test result/vaccination record to be shared with the Miami COVID-19 testing and response teams, as needed, in order to exempt you from testing, isolation, and/or quarantine.

There is no charge for this service, though you have the option to purchase a membership which will provide lifetime access to your immunization data that can be shared with others, as you designate.
