Immunization Requirements
In order to minimize both the school and state-wide health impact of measles, the Connecticut Legislature passed SHB 7171 AAC Proof of Immunization Against Measles, Mumps, and Rubella for Certain Persons at Institutions of Higher Education. This bill became effective July 1, 1989. This law states that if an individual was born in the United States after December 31, 1956, and enrolls as a part-time or full-time matriculated student at an institution of higher education in Connecticut, the individual must present either a certificate of immunization against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella, or laboratory evidence demonstrating said immunity. Students will not be permitted to register without proper immunization documentation.

Adequate Immunization

Measles, Mumps, & Rubella (MMR): Two doses of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine administered at least one month apart.
Varicella (Chicken Pox): Two doses or provide certification from physician that student has had disease.

Exemptions to this requirement include:A day in the life of an MxCC Student

Individuals born before January 1, 1957
Laboratory confirmation of immunity to such disease
Documentation from a physician stating that the student is medically contraindicated from receiving such vaccine
Documentation from the student that such immunization is contrary to his/her religious beliefs
Documentation from a physician or director of health that the student has had a confirmed case of such disease
A student’s health and that of the campus community depend upon compliance with this legislation. For additional information, contact the Dean of Students at 860–343–5759.
