Immunizations

Undergraduate Students

The state of Minnesota requires that all undergraduate students born after 01/01/1957 be immunized against diphtheria and tetanus (TD), and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and provide their vaccination dates.

If you have had measles, mumps, or rubella, the law requires that you either have a blood titre (blood test) done to prove immunity (please send a copy of the laboratory work) or a physician's signed document attesting to the disease, and also the month and year in which you had the disease.

There is no titre that is acceptable as proof of immunity to diphtheria-tetanus.

Undergraduate students are to enter the following information in myHealthPortal:

  • The 2 dates of your measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccination
  • The date of the tetanus-diphtheria (TD) vaccine (must be within the past ten years)

Note: All new undergraduate students must enter their MMR and TD dates by the 45th day of class. Registered students are to enter their immunization records into myHealthPortal

The following immunizations are also recommended for students but not required. They can also be entered into myHealthPortal.

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Influenza Vaccine
  • Meningitis
  • Polio Vaccine
  • Varicella

Graduate and Professional Students

Graduate and professional program students are encouraged to provide their immunization information to assist in clinical care and/or travel health, but it is not a requirement.  Registered students can enter their immunization records into myHealthPortal.
