Immunization

The University of Iowa has a measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) immunization requirement for registration. To comply, complete the Immunization Form (available on the Student Health web site) and return it to Student Health by the opening of classes. Students who do not comply will not be permitted to register for subsequent sessions.

The requirement is fulfilled if you:

  • were born before 1957; or
  • received two doses of MMR vaccine. The first must be after your first birthday. The second must be at least 28 days after your first immunization. Immunizations for MMR are available at Student Health for a fee.
  • have positive antibody titres (blood tests) for all three diseases. The titres can be done at Student Health for a fee.
