Immunizations for Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)

During your first semester, you will be required to present proof of your previous vaccinations for Measles, Mumps and Rubella. In most countries, these vaccinations were given to you in childhood. Please bring proof of your vaccinations showing you were given “two doses of measles and rubella individually or in combination (i.e. MR or MMR) at 12 months of age and at least 1 month later”.

Documentation of immunization includes:

  • Verification of immunity completed by healthcare provider
  • Photocopy of your childhood immunization record
  • Photocopy of your California High School transcript if immunization information is documented on transcript
  • A copy of a lab report showing proof of immunity by blood titer

If you have not been vaccinated for MMR, please obtain these vaccinations in your home country now. If you cannot complete this task before arrival, then the Student Health Center will administer the immunizations for a fee.
