Missouri Valley College requires all students to be in compliance with required immunizations. This to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the MVC campus as well as the local community. Missouri Valley College is partnering with Med+Proctor for our immunization compliance and verification process. All students including Freshman, returners, and transfers are required to provide proof of vaccinations through the platform at Med+Proctor. There is no charge for this service, though you do have the option to purchase a membership that provides you with lifetime access to your immunization records as well as instant verification of uploaded documents. This is a one time fee of only $12.00.
Med+Proctor is a secure, cloud-based, fully automated system and user-friendly platform that is both HIPAA and FERPA compliant. With this format, you can even upload clear pictures straight from your smart phone.
Use your MVC email address to make an account in Med+Proctor. All students will provide and upload proof of 2 Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccines and complete a TB Risk Assessment. If you are living in campus housing, you are required to have proof of a Meningitis (MCV4) vaccine ≥ 16 years, and a Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (TDaP) vaccine within the last 10 years.
If you request exemption from any vaccination requirements for religious or other purposes you must obtain a waiver request from the Dean of Students or Student Health Center. You will be required to explain your need for exemption (i.e. particular religious beliefs) and provide documentation from a licensed medical doctor attesting that you do not currently have Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Meningitis, or Tuberculosis. We reserve the right to deny any exemption waiver. In the event of disease outbreak for any of the diseases that vaccination is required, students that are approved for exemption will be immediately removed from campus to prevent the possible spread of disease and will not be granted special opportunity to complete coursework or receive monetary refund. This requirement is to ensure the safety of the exempted student and the entire campus community.
If you fail to adhere to the immunization requirements, you will not be permitted to move into housing nor start classes.
All immunization submissions to Med+Proctor must be done at least 72 hours prior to check-in/arrival to Missouri Valley College. Please upload your immunization records at your earliest convenience.
