Immunization Requirements

Minnesota requires all undergraduate students born after 1956 to be immunized against TD and MMR.

All students, faculty, and staff are required to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus before returning for the fall 2022 term. The vaccine requirement will remain in place for the 2022-2023 academic year. See COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement page for more information.

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

There is no option for proof of immunity to tetanus-diphtheria (TD). Vaccination is required.

Action Required

All new undergraduate students must provide two MMR vaccination dates, one Tdap vaccination date (within the last ten years), and two COVID vaccine dates by the 1st day of class. To comply:

  1. Login to myHealthPortal. (New students will be able to log in the day after registration.)
  2. Select 'My Forms' from the menu
  3. Select the 'Immunization Verification' form
  4. Enter two MMR vaccination dates
  5. Enter one Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) vaccination date within the last ten years
  6. Select 'Submit' and log off

Submit Your Vaccination Dates

Login to the health portal to enter the dates you received your MMR and Tdap using the Immunization Verification form. Proof of two COVID vaccinations must be uploaded.

Graduate & 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.

All registered graduate and professional students, undergraduate students, faculty and staff are required to upload proof of two COVID vaccinations before returning for the 2022-2023 academic year. You can upload a photo of your vaccination card using "document uploads" found on myHealthPortal. See the Covid Vaccine Requirements page for more information.
