Why an MMR requirement? Expand

 

Per EWU Policy all incoming students, as well as staff and faculty are required to submit proof of MMR immunity.

Measles, mumps and rubella are highly communicable diseases that can be mitigated by receiving two (2) doses of the MMR vaccine. The presence in our society of individuals who have not been immunized for measles, mumps and rubella creates a significant health risk.  College populations remain susceptible to measles, mumps and rubella and these diseases continue to be associated with outbreaks in the general public and on college campuses.  During the recent past, there have been numerous cases in Washington State and Spokane County, Washington.  Confirmed outbreaks on a college campus can lead the Spokane Regional Health District to place a campus on exclusionary status.

In the event the Spokane Regional Health District determines there is a measles, mumps, or rubella outbreak on campus, university officials will notify those students and staff who have an approved waiver request of the outbreak.  Students and staff with approved waiver requests will not be allowed on campus including, but not limited to: attending classes, working, participating in campus activities, or living in residence halls.  Typically, an outbreak lasts for two to four weeks and students with an approved waiver will not be allowed on campus during an outbreak.  Once the outbreak is no longer in effect, students and staff will be notified that they may return to campus.

What document(s) can I submit? Expand

We accept any of the following documents as proof of measles, mumps, and rubella immunity:

  • Copy of your military immunization record, or
  • Signed proof of immunity form (located on the Med+Proctor site) from your healthcare provider.

Are there exemptions to the requirement? Expand

If you have a medical or religious reason to be exempt from this requirement, complete the Request for Waiver form found in the Med+Proctor system. Once waiver is completed, upload document to the Med+Proctor site.

If you are a student in a 100% online program and do not ever come to campus, you do not need to do anything.

If you submit a waiver form, and we have an outbreak of Measles, Mumps or Rubella on campus, you will be notified and will not be allowed on campus. This includes, but is not limited to: attending classes, participating in campus activities, or living in residence halls. You will continue to be responsible for paying tuition and housing costs during the time you are excluded from campus. An outbreak typically lasts for a minimum of two weeks and you will not be able to be on campus during that time period. Once the outbreak is no longer in effect, you will be notified that you will be able to return to campus.
