MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) Vaccination
Measles and Mumps can be serious illnesses and measles can be a life-threatening illness. For this reason, immunization against measles and mumps is necessary as a public health measure to protect students and community members alike.
The University of Arizona policy requires the following from all incoming and transfer students:
- Proof of two (2) MMR immunizations or a lab test that shows immunity to Measles (Rubeola) and Mumps.
- (Rubeola = Hard measles/10 day measles)
- The first vaccination is given at or after 1 year of age and the second is commonly given at or after 4 - 6 years of age. If your records do not reflect this immunization schedule, the two MMR vaccinations must be at least 28 days apart from each administrated date.
- At least one of the MMR shots must have been given after 1979.
- The immunization requirement is waived if you were born before January 1, 1957
For more information, please see the Immunization Requirements page.
To submit your immunizations, please upload your documents through your PatientLink portal at the bottom of this page.
Please allow 2 business days for your documents to be processed and the immunization hold lifted from your account.
