    Students shall provide dates of any combination of three or more doses of Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis containing vaccine. Abbreviations for these vaccines include DPT, DTAP, DT, TD or TDAP. One dose must be a TDAP. The last dose must have been received within 10 years prior to enrollment.
  • Measles, Mumps and Rubella
    Students shall provide documentation of receipt of two doses of Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. The first dose must have been received on or after their first birthday.
