Valid proof of flu vaccine is documentation that includes your name, DOB, type of flu vaccine that you received, lot number, and date the vaccine was administered. If you receive a flu shot from your primary care provider, this information can be found on your electronic health record. Other flu vaccine providers (ie, a CVS Pharmacy) will also give you documentation with this information.
If you’re an employee and receive a flu shot on campus from HMI, they will provide you with a receipt containing all of this information. The receipt from HMI is the yellow copy of the consent form signed prior to receiving the flu vaccine. It looks like this.
If you’re a student, Occupational Health will offer flu vaccines at the Health Sciences campus starting on 11/1. If you receive a flu shot from Occupational Health, they will provide you with a receipt that you can upload to the health app.
