This form is required for all HPU students and will be maintained by the University Nurse. Certified shot records must accompany the form, but they can be mailed to HPU (University Nurse, 1000 Fisk Street, Brownwood, TX  76801) or faxed (325-649-8819). Please review the health form carefully for required vaccinations.

Shot Records
Shot records must be validated by a physician, public health clinic or transcript from school records. Please take note of the following requirement regarding the state-mandated bacterial meningitis vaccination requirement:
 Per Texas state law, new students enrolling at HPU beginning in the Spring 2012 semester – and former students who are returning to HPU after an absence – must be vaccinated against bacterial meningitis prior to scheduling classes or Day 1 events and at least 10 days before the first day of classes. A hold will be placed on the student’s records preventing class scheduling until proof of the vaccination has been supplied to the University Nurse.
