Immunization Requirements

In compliance with Section 97.63 of the Texas Administrative Code, all full-time students at the University must provide proof of immunization for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR 1 and 2), and a Tetanus/Diphtheria (TD) booster received within the last 10 years during their first semester of enrollment. Lacking such verification, students should obtain the required immunizations from their private physician or through their local Public Health Department.

It is recommended but not required for any undergraduate less than 25 who wish as to reduce their risk of meningococcal disease to consider vaccination. Freshmen should consider the meningitis vaccination preferably at entry into college and if they are going to live in dormitories or residence halls.

Students enrolled in Health Care majors, which will involve direct patient contact (Nursing, Nutrition, and Nuclear Medicine) are subject to more stringent immunization requirements prior to being admitted to clinical settings. For further information, contact Health Services at (210) 829-6017.
