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

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.

Student Health Services highly recommends being vaccinated against Meningitis, Hepatitis B, Pertussis, and Varicella, but these are not required. Students who have received these vaccinations should forward documentation to the address below.

Official Immunization Records

Immunization records must indicate the date of immunization and are REQUIRED to be signed or stamped from one of the following sources:

  • Healthcare provider
  • High school
  • Military base
  • Previous college

Titer 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.

Did you know?

Maine State Law (22-MRSA§6359) amendment 10-144 DHHS requires all full-time and degree seeking part time post-secondary school students born after 1956 to show proof of immunization against measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus and diphtheria. The copy of your immunization records must include the following:

1. Two doses of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)

2. Tetanus and diphtheria vaccine that has been given within the last 10 years. If only a tetanus shot has been given within the last 5 years you may be temporarily exempt from the diphtheria requirement.

You must be re-immunized if your tetanus/diphtheria vaccine is out of date. You must also show proof of two MMR shots. History of having the disease is not sufficient. A blood titer may be drawn to prove immunity if the student prefers that to immunization or if a medical record is not available. A copy of your laboratory titer report must be sent with your other immunization records.

Medical/philosophical/religious exemptions: Request a copy of the “exemption from vaccination” form from our office and submit the signed copy to us. Other reasons for exemption must be written in a formal request and attached to the form. It must be understood that all students who are exempt for any reason will be required to leave the university if there an outbreak of any disease for which an exemption has been given.

If we do not receive documentation about your immunizations, you will be unable to register for classes: compliance with state law is mandatory. Please send copies of records, not originals, as immunization records cannot be returned.
