Welcome New Huskies

WHAT: 

Measles, mumps immunization: All students must submit evidence of measles and mumps immunity by two MMR vaccines or positive measles and mumps titers.  

Meningitis ACWY immunization: All students under 22 must submit proof of meningitis ACWY conjugate vaccination.  

COVID-19 immunization: All students, including students in fully online programs, must submit evidence of COVID-19 vaccination. If students haven’t yet been vaccinated where they live, there are many vaccination options available at or near the UW. COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the United States and/or the World Health Organization will satisfy this requirement.

The immunization requirements protect you, your peers and the broader community.
