All healthcare students (e.g., Medical, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Physician Assistant, Dental Hygiene, Radiology, Speech-Language Pathology, Nutrition, Medical Technology, and Athletic Training), need to show evidence of having obtained required immunizations and tests as part of their clinical education compliance. See link below for detailed information:
Immunizations Required for Health Sciences Center and Other Clinical Programs and Other Related Information
Students need to bring their records to the UNM SHAC Allergy & Immunization Clinic for review and verification. If students have questions about these requirements, nurses in the Allergy and Immunization Clinic will advise, make recommendations, and provide vaccines or tests as indicated. Please call 505-277-7925 to speak with a nurse.
Please call UNM SHAC Reception to make an appointment for the A & I Clinic at (505) 277-3136.

Secure Messages and Multi-Page Attachments
In order to help students obtain immunization compliance records electronically, we sometimes utilize secure messaging on our Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) Patient Portal. Often, student immunization compliance records can be two to three pages long. These scanned documents are attached in the “.tif” format. We recognize that some students have had trouble viewing multi-page .tif files from their electronic devices (phones, tablets, and in some cases, computers *).
SHAC IT has investigated this issue and has provided the following explanation and recommendations for students: Multi-Page Attachments - Overview & Recommendations
* Please note that all University of New Mexico computer pods should allow students to view multi-page .tif files.
