Which Immunizations Do I Need?

Different types of students are required to have different vaccinations. Please read this page carefully to make sure you know what you need.

All Students

Oklahoma law requires all students — no matter what year or program you're in (undergraduate, graduate and law students) — to be vaccinated against the following:

  • Hepatitis B

  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)

If you've already been vaccinated, we need copies of your proof of vaccination.

If you don't have copies of your proof of vaccination, don't worry: There's a simple blood test we administer to determine your immunities.
