Uploading your vaccine records

Please upload all your vaccination records including your primary and booster records. This information is critical to understanding our population’s health and what resources are needed by our community. Students can use the updated Vaccination Upload eForm, which allows you to upload your primary vaccination series, your booster record, or both. Employees can upload their records through MyUWPortal (follow the directions on this tip sheet to ensure your profile is updated). Note that updates to this UWS-created form are in development to reflect references to the boosters. Once the form has been finalized, Finance and Administration will send a message out to all employees with an updated Tip Sheet providing detailed instructions on how to use the form.

If you have lost your vaccination card or don’t have a copy, contact your vaccination provider directly to access your vaccination record. If you cannot contact your vaccination provider directly, contact your state health department’s immunization information system (IIS). You can find state IIS information on the CDC website. Vaccination providers are required to report COVID-19 vaccinations to their IIS and related systems. 

All vaccination records are shared with the WI Department of Health Services.
