As of fall term 2017, the University of Oregon has expanded its immunization requirements for incoming students. Students are encouraged to satisfy all of their immunization requirements before arriving on campus. Vaccines offer safe and effective protection from certain infectious diseases and safeguard the health of students and the community.
The following vaccinations are required:
- Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) series completion
- Meningococcal quadrivalent (serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135) vaccination for all students younger than 22 (dose received on or after turning 16)
- Varicella (chickenpox) series completion
- Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) (one dose on or after age 11)
Incoming students also must complete an online screening questionnaire for tuberculosis (TB). Results of this evaluation, in addition to documentation of required vaccinations (or evidence of immunity to these diseases) must be submitted to the University Health Center. Full details are available on the website.
While not required at this time, immunizations are also strongly recommended for meningococcal B strain, hepatitis A and B, and human papillomavirus (HPV), in addition to an annual flu shot. Pneumococcal vaccine is recommended for students with certain medical conditions.
