  • MMR-Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine: Two doses are required by the State of Colorado for all students born after 1/1/1957. The first dose must be given no more than 4 days before the 1st birthday with at least 28 days between doses.  Full dates (month/day/year) are required.  Proof of immunization must be provided in English.  Please check with your physician, state immunization registry, high school, previous university, county office, and/or military to obtain an official copy of your records.  You may provide a blood titer indicating proof of your immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella.  Medical and nonmedical exemptions are allowed by law; however, in the event of an outbreak, exempted persons may be subject to quarantine and exclusion from school.
  • Covid Vaccination:   Students must be fully vaccinated against Covid.  A person is fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving all recommended doses in the primary series of their Covid-19 vaccination.  (For example:  Moderna and Pfizer 2 doses.  Johnson & Johnson 1 dose.)  Boosters are not currently required, but are highly recommended.  International students:  We accept WHO recognized Covid vaccines.  Please enter dates of Covid vaccinations and upload documentation.  If you are requesting a COVID medical or nonmedical exemption, forms can be found in Trailhead by clicking the Health Portal bubble and then the Forms tab.  Additional information can be found at www.mines.edu/vaccine 
  • Upload supporting documents:  We must verify your immunizations/test results.  Any undocumented immunizations will be removed from your vaccine record.
  • Tuberculosis Questionnaire:  Please complete this required form on the Patient Health Portal. (Forms tab)  If testing is indicated, please upload results.
  • If living on campus: Proof of a Meningococcal ACWY vaccine (for example: Menactra, MCV4, Menveo) given within the last 5 years must be documented on your immunization record.  If this time period will expire while living on campus, you may choose to receive a booster from your physician or the Student Health Center. Students living on campus will have a hold placed on their account 5 years after the date of the most recent Meningitis ACWY vaccine. Currently, Meningitis ACWY is required, Meningitis B is recommended.  A waiver of this requirement is accepted by completing and uploading the Meningococcal Disease form.
