All immunization documentation must be submitted through Med+Proctor, the UTM immunization portal.

Hepatitis B Requirements
Recommended but not required.

Tennessee law requires that such students complete and sign a wavier form provided by the institution. Waiver is located on the Med+Proctor portal.
Meningococcal Disease (Meningitis) Requirements

If your initial vaccine for meningitis was given prior to the age of 16, immunization requirements will not be met unless and additional booster vaccine is given after your 16th birthday. Failure to provide adequate documentation will prevent you from moving into on-campus housing upon your arrival.
Meningococcal Serogroup B Vaccine is recommended but not required and will not be accepted in place of the Meningococcal conjugate vaccine requirement.
A student who has been exempted from a particular vaccination must comply with the immunization requirements for any vaccines from which he or she has not been exempted.
