All campuses of the University of Pittsburgh have the following immunization requirements, in accordance with the recommendations of the U.S. Public Health Service. The requirements for all full-time college students born after 1956 are as follows:

Measles immunization: two doses
Mumps immunization: one dose
Rubella immunization: one dose

Written proof or a photocopy of the signed record from the physician or clinic, containing the month, day, and year of each immunization must be provided. (See page 3 of the Student Health Evaluation Form.)

Please note: A current inoculation of the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine satisfies the university immunization requirement. Written proof must be provided. If you are unable to locate your immunization records, please contact the Pennsylvania State Dept. of Health (or other state health center) in your area to receive the MMR shot for only $5.00. Otherwise, you may wish to see your family physician to receive an MMR booster, and provide us with written proof from the physician or clinic that you have received the MMR shot.

New incoming full-time students who fail to provide written proof of required immunizations will be prohibited from registering for any classes beyond the term of first enrollment, on any campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

Students entering the nursing program have additional requirements unique to that program. Those requirements will be communicated to you by the Department of Nursing.

The Student Health Evaluation Form must be completed and returned with your proof of immunizations to:

University of Pittsburgh at Bradford
Student Health Center
Bradford, PA 16701-2898

If you have questions about the immunization requirement or other health concerns, please contact Carol Mulvihill, R.N.,C., Director of Health Services, (814)362-7631, or Cindy Cavallero, Administrative Secretary, (814)362-7630.

Thank you.
