In the spirit of caring for the wellness of our entire community, we recommend that individuals receive MMR and meningococcal vaccines. MMR vaccines protect against measles, mumps, and rubella, and is recommended by the CDC for students at post-high school educational institutions who do not have presumptive immunization. Meningococcal disease requires close contact to spread so is a concern on college campuses, especially for students living in residence halls. Ask your doctor which vaccines you need. NOTE: Some WWU programs (such as nursing and education) may have specific requirements related to their work with external orginizations.
