All enrolled matriculated students are required to provide proof of measles (rubeola) immunity. Students will not be allowed to register for any classes until the UW Bothell Registrar's Office confirms that they have satisfied this requirement.
Students born before 01/01/57 are considered to be immune to measles and therefore do NOT need to submit proof of immunity.
Students must complete the top portion of the Measles Immunity Verification form and provide either: Certification by their health care provider on the bottom of the form; OR Attach copies of original immunization records; OR Attach a statement on letterhead stationery from their health care provider as proof of:
- Two live virus measles (rubeola) vaccinations, both given after 01/01/68 and after the first birthday; OR
- Positive measles (rubeola) titer (blood test for antibodies against measles); OR
- A history of measles (rubeola) disease.
In the event of a measles outbreak on the campus, students who have not previously submitted proof of immunity to measles will be barred from classes, living groups, and other campus activities until health officials determine that there is no risk of them transmitting the disease to others.
Students who have questions or concerns about the measles immunity requirement are encouraged to contact the UW Bothell Registrar's Office well in advance of their registration date.
