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:
- 2 MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccination dates
- 1 Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) vaccination date within the last ten years
All new undergraduate students must enter their MMR and Tdap dates by the 45th day of class.
Note: Only registered students have to access myHealthPortal (new students will be able to log in the day after registration).
The following immunizations are also recommended for students but not required. They can also be entered into myHealthPortal.
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Influenza Vaccine
- Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

For complete review of childhood and adult vaccine immunization schedules, see the CDC Immunization Schedules.
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.
