Immunization

Measles, Rubella and Hepatitis B immunization requirements

The State of California and CSUMB require students to provide proof of immunization to maintain enrollment status.

Measles and Rubella: Under the provisions of Executive Order No. 803 from the Board of Trustees of the California State University, all students born after January 1, 1957 are required to provide proof of immunization against Measles and Rubella prior to enrolling in the second semester of coursework.

Hepatitis B: Pursuant to Section 120390.5 of the Health and Safety Code, all first-time enrollees who are 18 years of age or younger must also present proof of immunization against Hepatitis B. The entire Hep B, 3-shot series must be completed prior to enrolling in your second semester.

Ways to prove immunity

Submit one of the following to the Campus Health Center:

  • Pediatrician's statement or record of immunizations
  • State or international immunization records
  • Primary or secondary school records
  • Immunization records from another college or university attended
  • Military records
  • Results of a blood test indicating Hepatitis B and/or Measles and Rubella immunity

If you cannot verify immunity using any of the above sources, you will need to complete the necessary blood tests to determine immunity or receive the required vaccine(s) from a physician or clinic of your choice. The Campus Health Center also provides these services for a fee.

How to submit proof of immunization

Proof of immunization may be submitted in any of the following ways:

  • Mail your documents to the Campus Health Center or the Campus Service Center at: 100 Campus Center, Seaside, CA 93955-8001
  • Fax your documents to the Campus Health Center at: 831-582-3976
  • Bring your documents to the Campus Health Center during business hours

If you have questions or are precluded from these requirements due to a physical condition (validated in writing by your physician) or because of your personal or religious beliefs, please contact the Campus Health Center.

Please note that email is NOT a secure method of communication. Therefore, please do NOT email any medical documents.

Meningitis

All incoming students who will be residing in on-campus housing for the first time must acknowledge that they have received information about the meningococcal disease and availability of the vaccine to prevent contracting the disease. This process is managed through Student Housing & Residential Life.
