    I am in the process of trying to obtain my childhood vaccine records. If I am unable to I will pay for titers, then get the vaccines I need done/redone.

    when i requested my high school transcripts there was also a fee to get a copy of my shot records. This would have been provided when i started school. Just a thought. Does anyone have a copy of the shots we need to get? I might go ahead and get them done before the orientation period. Wonder if insurance will pay for any of them?

    I posted it a few days ago, you should be able to find it by going back a few days. If you have full coverage insurance and go to a participating provider you will likely have your shots covered at 100%. Most full coverage insurance will cover a PPD too, the issue is getting doctor offices to actually bill insurance for a PPD. Try Take Care Health, they'll bill your insurance then bill you later. I had to pay 100% of the PPD because of my deductable, but even then it was only $3.60 after the claim was filed because of insurance discounted rates. Unless you're pregnant, most insurances will not cover titers. Best bet is to shop around. Best price i've found so far is Online Medical Lab Tests | Blood Tests .

    THANKS FOR REPLYING! I ACTUALLY LOOKED INTO TRYING TO GET IT FROM MY HIGH SCHOOL BUT THEY ARE JUST GIVING ME THE RUN AROUND. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW PRIMARY FOR NEXT WEEK, AND THEY SUGGESTED DOING TITERS. SO I THINK THATS THE ROUTE IM GOING TO BE TRYING. MY NEXT QUESTION IS TO SHAUNY2K3....SO YOU DO THINK INSURANCE WILL COVER THE TITERS, AND IMMUNIZATIONS? BECAUSE I HAVE A FEELING IM GOING TO BE STARTING FROM SCRATCH! i CANT EVEN REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I HAD SHOTS.

    Do you have a major medical plan? e.g. employer sponsored HMO, POS, PPO? If so, your vaccines should be covered as a preventive benefit (100% coverage) and the PPD under the lab test benefits. Insurance typically won't cover titers unless you're pregnant and it's ordered by an OB (there are some exceptions). Check out the list I made on page 57 to see what the requirements are.

    So far the lowest GPA accepted that I've seen posted here was a 3.52. That's not the official cutoff though.

    Influenza- Proof of immunity by vaccination or signed waiver. This vaccination must be current ( based upon current flu season requirements). You will need to follow additional clinical requirements if u choose not to be vaccinated.
