The California State University has two immunization requirements that apply to certain groups of students. Follow the procedure below in order to receive immunization clearances.

Measles (rubeola) and Rubella (German Measles)

All new students born after January 1, 1957 are required to present proof of measles and rubella immunizations. Evidence that you can use for proof of immunity includes verification from an M.D. or copies of immunization records from sources such as schools or the Public Health Department. If you do not already have proof of immunity to both of these diseases, you can obtain a combined measles/rubella vaccine at the Student Health Center, for a nominal fee. Proof of immunity to measles and rubella must be submitted within one calendar year of the time of your first enrollment, or you will not be permitted to register for the following semester.

Hepatitis B

If you are 18 years old or younger on the first day of classes of the first semester of your enrollment at CSUDH, you are required to present proof of Hepatitis B immunization. Even if you turn 19 years of age during your first year of enrollment at the University, you are still responsible for completing this requirement. Proof of full immunity means that you must have proof of completion of the third shot in the three-shot Hepatitis B series. For students under the age of 19 who have not been immunized against Hepatitis B prior to their first enrollment, the series can be obtained through the Student Health Center for a nominal fee. Proof of full immunity must be submitted within one calendar year of the time of your first enrollment, or you will not be permitted to register for the following semester.

Important General Information

If either the Measles/Rubella or the Hepatitis B requirement applies to you, you must bring proof of immunity to the Student Health Center in person. Students who are meeting this requirement by either (a) presenting proof of immunity or (b) claiming an exemption, must complete the Immunization Requirements Certification form below and bring it, along with proof of immunity, to the Student Health Center for clearance.
