New Student Immunization Requirements

The University of Arizona requires proof of measles and mumps (MMR) vaccination for all students born after 12/31/56.

You will not be allowed to register for classes until you meet the following MMR immunization requirement:

  • Two doses of the MMR vaccine or two doses of individual Measles, Mumps, and Rubella vaccination.
  • The first vaccination must be on or after your first birthday. Any MMR administered before your first birthday is invalid.
  • The second vaccination must be at least 28 days after the first MMR vaccination.
  • Your record must include the month, day, and year of your vaccinations.
  • One of the two MMR's must have an administration date after 12/31/79.
  • International students must also provide proof of 1 Rubella vaccination.

A positive serology (blood test) for Measles and Mumps can be also used to satisfy the MMR immunization requirement. Serologies with a result of 'Equivocal' or 'Negative' are considered not immune to Measles and Mumps and will require booster vaccination.

If you still have questions about the new student immunization requirements, please review our Immunization FAQ page.
