Immunizations

Required Vaccine
All students born after January 1, 1957 are required to meet the following MMR immunization requirement before class registration:

  • Option 1 - Provide proof of two measles vaccinations (one of which must be dated after 1979), first dose given at age 12 months or later. Second dose given at least 28 days after the first.
  • Option 2 -  Provide a copy of lab test results showing positive immunity to Rubeola (Measles) lgG or MMR lgG.
  • Submit the MMR Immunization Form (PDF) along with your proof of vaccination or lab results showing positive immunity to Measles. You will continue to see a MMR Immunization hold under "Priority Tasks" on  your My ASU account until your measles information is received and verified. Processing time is within 2 business days.
  • Read additional information about MMR.

The MMR vaccine is available for a fee at any of ASU's health services locations.

Recommended Vaccine

ASU Health Services also strongly recommends and provides services for immunization against:

Meningococcal Meningitis  ACWY (one dose after age 16) and B (2 doses before age 24)
Meningitis is a potentially fatal or devastating illness and the risk is higher for college students living in residence halls than for 18–23 year old persons not in college.

Human Papilloma Virus (3 dose series)
The human papilloma virus (HPV) can cause cervical cancer in females, anal cancer in females and males, throat cancer in females and males and penile cancer in males.

Influenza (Yearly)
Influenza or flu is a contagious respiratory illness. It can cause mild to severe illness, and can also result in serious outcomes such as hospitalization or death. The vaccine is available at ASU Health Services starting in September/October of each year.

Pertussis or whooping cough (Tetanus Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap, Adacel or Boostrix) Update every 10 years)
Whooping cough is a contagious respiratory disease that can cause prolonged symptoms. If you missed the Tdap booster as a teen, you will need to get a Tdap booster to make sure you have protection from whooping cough.

Are you under the age of 18?

Arizona law requires parental consent to provide medical treatment for individuals under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, a Parental Consent form must be completed by your parent or guardian.
