Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR)

Students born during or after 1957 who are planning to register for at least one in-person class, live on campus, or access in-person services or facilities on Stony Brook’s campuses  must provide proof of immunity against Measles, Mumps and Rubella.

Evidence of MMR immunity includes any of the following  as long as the first dose is administered on or after the first birthday and the second dose is administered at least 28 days after the first dose:

  • TWO DOSES of MEASLES/MUMPS/RUBELLA (MMR) VACCINE

  • TWO DOSES of MEASLES VACCINE, ONE DOSE OF MUMPS VACCINE AND ONE DOSE OF RUBELLA VACCINE

  • TWO DOSES OF MEASLES, MUMPS, RUBELLA, VARICELLA (MMRV) VACCINE

    In lieu of (not in addition to) an acceptable combination of vaccines above, a positive blood test (a quantitative titer only) showing protective antibodies to measles (rubeola), mumps and rubella is acceptable to prove immunity. A copy of the official lab report must be provided.

If you have no record of any Measles, Mumps or Rubella (MMR) Vaccines:

If you believe you have had these vaccines as a child, but cannot provide adequate medical documentation or you have not received these vaccines you have two options:

  1. Receive two MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccinations (must be received at least 28 days apart).
  2. Obtain measles, mumps, and rubella blood tests (only quantitative titers can be accepted).
      • You can reach out to your medical provider for these tests.
      • In the event these blood tests show you are not immune to the diseases (measles, mumps and rubella) you will need to receive vaccines.

If you have record of one Measles, Mumps or Rubella (MMR) Vaccine:

If you have adequate documentation of one MMR vaccine (including one given here at Student Health Services) you have two options:

  1. Receive the second MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccination.
  2. Obtain measles, mumps, and rubella blood tests (only quantitative titers can be accepted).
      • You can reach out to your medical provider for these tests.
      • In the event these blood tests show you are not immune to the diseases (measles, mumps and rubella) you will need to receive vaccines.
