Measles Requirement FAQ

Are you a Cyber Student?

Where can I get immunization documentation?

Immunization records can usually be obtained from stamped immunization cards, military records or your primary care physician's office. We'll also accept MMR shot dates recorded on high school transcripts, as well as the State of Washington immunization record form (this is the form printed in green ink that parents sign and submit to WA State high schools just prior to admission).

Where can I get vaccinated?

The WWU Student Health Center provides MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) vaccine and the rubeola titer blood test to current and new students when classes are in session (we are closed during intersessions). Go to our “Charges” page for the current costs. Other options for MMR vaccine are the Whatcom County Health Department (located at 509 Girard St., Bellingham, (360) 676-6720) by appointment only), other county health departments, some pharmacies, walk-in clinics, and other health care providers/medical clinics. The rubeola titer must be ordered by a healthcare provider; an appointment with a provider is needed.

Where do I send my documentation?

All documentation should be sent directly to the WWU Student Health Center (516 High St., Bellingham, WA 98225-9132). You may also FAX copies of your documentation to (360) 650-3883 or (360) 650-4580, or email your documents to us at  Student.Health@wwu.edu.
