All entering freshmen must show proof of the following immunizations: MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella), Tdap (tetanus and diphtheria), meningococcal, and varicella. Students are also required to be screened for tuberculosis.
Many students receive their immunizations the summer before they enter their freshman year from a local doctor‚Äôs office or health department.
Immunizations are also available at the UAB Student Health and Wellness Center by appointment only.
Please note that School of Nursing and School of Health Professions students may require additional immunizations.
