Immunization Requirements

The University of Maine requires the submission of official immunization records prior to enrollment.

State of Maine Requirements

Maine Law requires all degree-seeking students and full-time, non-degree students born after December 31, 1956 to provide the following proof of immunization:

  • One (1) dose of Tetanus/Diphtheria (Td or Tdap) received within the last ten (10) years.
  • Two (2) doses of Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) received after (not on) the first birthday.  If measles immunization was done prior to 1968, students must provide proof it was done with a live virus.

Titre tests with positive results for immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella are accepted as long as they are signed or stamped and clearly indicate immunity to all three diseases.

The University of Maine strongly recommends students receive immunization against Meningitis, but it is not required.  Students who have received a Meningitis vaccination should forward documentation to the address below.
