About UCLA Immunization Requirements
Compliance, Exceptions, Deadlines & More
The UC Immunization Policy requires all newly-admitted incoming students to provide proof of vaccination or immunity to measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), pertussis (whooping cough), varicella (chickenpox), and screening for tuberculosis, prior to entering and enrolling at the University of California. The meningococcal conjugate vaccine (ACWY) is required for students age 21 and younger.
In addition, newly admitted incoming students must be screened for tuberculosis risk by completing the TB screening questionnaire form on The Ashe Center Patient Portal. Students who have any “yes” answers are required to submit documentation of either skin or blood testing for TB, done within the 6-month period preceding entry to UCLA. Those with a history of a positive TB test are required to submit documentation of a chest x-ray done within the 6-month period preceding entry to UCLA.
All students must submit their information electronically through The Ashe Center Patient Portal only. Students with a specific program exception should follow the instructions given to them by their program/department.
