Health Insurance and Immunizations

Immunization/Vaccine Requirements

All incoming UO and AEI students are required to: 1) complete a Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Questionnaire; and 2) either provide proof of vaccination/immunity for a variety of infectious diseases, or initiate an approved waiver process.

Required immunizations include: Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR); Varicella (chickenpox); Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap); and Meningococcal Quadrivalent (MCV4, MPSV4). While not required at this time, immunizations are also strongly recommended for Meningococcal B Strain, Hepatitis A and B, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), and Seasonal Influenza (flu). The UO Health Center website also provides a more detailed list of vaccine and immunization requirements.

Please bring your immunization documentation with you to orientation. If you do not have documentation, complete the Certificate of Immunization Status form with the assistance of your health care provider, and bring the form with you to orientation. Without this information, you will NOT be able to register for your classes. For additional questions about immunization requirements contact the Immunization Compliance Coordinator by phone at 1-541-346-2747 or email

All international students and their dependents are required to have health insurance. All students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the UO Student Health Benefits Plan (UO SHBP). New international students must complete an “Insurance Compliance Form” prior to registration. You will learn more about health insurance and complete this form during orientation.
