New Students Welcome: UTMB

Immunization Requirements comply with the State of Texas, the Texas Department of Health, and the CDC. You must meet ALL identified requirements.


Texas Education Code, Section 51.952 authorized a governing board to require health insurance on students enrolled in health institutions. To find out more information about this plan or to enroll, please visit their website at If you already have health insurance coverage it must be comparable to the coverage of the UT System endorsed plan.

Please remember that immunizations and insurance coverage are mandatory and failure to complete these requirements may compromise your enrollment at UTMB.
