  • Or TWO combined doses of MMR vaccine dated 1968 or later
  • Or titer results (blood tests for the presence of antibodies to these diseases)
  • Or documented dates of disease of measles and/or mumps. The disease of rubella is NOT an acceptable proof of immunity. There MUST be proof of vaccine.

  • Received information about meningococcal disease and the vaccine
  • Obtained the meningococcal vaccine within the last ten years
  • Or decided NOT to obtain the vaccine.
