Minnesota State Policy on Immunization
Minnesota Law (M.S. 135A.14) requires that any student born after 1956 who is registering for more than one class per quarter MUST submit a statement of his or her immunization status to the institution where he or she is enrolled.
Students need to document the month and year they received the following immunizations:
- Measles (Rubeola) --two doses received after age 12 months
- Mumps --two doses received after age 12 months
- Rubella (German Measles) --two doses received after age 12 months
- Diphtheria/Tetanus --last vaccine within 10 years
Immunization forms are sent to all students when they are admitted to UMC. Students who have not completed an immunization statement should stop by the Student Health Office, 111 Bede Hall, to obtain the proper forms. Students who do not have knowledge of their immunization status are encouraged to contact the high school they attended or their hometown health clinic. These institutions may have the records on file.
Students are required by law to provide this immunization information within 45 days after beginning classes at UMC. Students who fail to do so cannot remain enrolled and will not be allowed to register for the following academic term until these records are in compliance with the law.
