The State of Colorado requires that you have proof of immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) when attending classes at UCCS.
IN ORDER TO COMPLY WITH THIS STATE LAW, YOU MUST DO ONE OF FOUR THINGS:
Please bring a COPY of your immunization records to the Student Health Center. The Health Center will assist you in complying with this State law. If you absolutely cannot find documentation of prior immunizations, MMR immunizations are available at a reduced cost at the Health Center by calling 255-4444 for an appointment. You may also receive the immunizations from your personal health care provider or your local County Health Department. Do not mail your records to any other department on campus.
Note: MMR vaccine is not required for college students born before January 1, 1957.
An official NOTICE regarding the Colorado Department of Health and Environment MMR requirement is e-mailed to those students who have not yet complied with the state law prior to the Admission and Records department placing registration blocks.
State Law requires that all resident freshmen students living in on campus housing must receive the meningococcal vaccine or sign a waiver stating they understand the risks prior to move in. While this law is only required for freshmen students living in Housing, the Student Health Center encourages all freshman to get the vaccination.
