3. Who is required to show proof of immunity?

All new and readmitted students born on or after January 1, 1957 are required to show proof of immunity to both measles and rubella. 

4. What is proof of immunity?

Proof of immunity is documentation that indicates you have received the full vaccination. If you don’t have those records you will need to get vaccinated. If you are positive you were vaccinated, or that you had the disease, you can also get a laboratory blood test that verifies you have immunity.  This test is called a “titer.” In some cases, a healthcare provider may be able to provide a signed verification that you have had the diseases. Such a document is also considered proof.

For international students all medical documentation must have attached English translation by private health provider, a public health care department, or government health agency.

5. Who is exempt from providing MMR proof of immunity?

If you have attended a 6 -12 grade California Public School (after June 30, 1999), you have satisfied the immunization requirement with your previous transcript submission.  

6. What if I do not have proof of immunity?

If you do not have proof of your immunity to measles and rubella, you need to get vaccinated. You can get your immunizations from your private health care provider or the Public Health Department.

Or once the semester begin and you are officially a SJSU student, you can also get immunizations via the SJSU Student Health Center.

7. Where can I submit my immunization information?

Please go to SHC Online Services page to upload your document. See details below.

Please have your medical immunization records available for upload.  If you do not have a scan machine, take a picture of your records with your cell phone and upload using your cell phone.
