COVID-19 Vaccination and Childhood Immunization Requirement

Do I need to have a health check or immunizations before attending U-M?

All U-M students residing in Michigan Housing on the Ann Arbor campus are required to submit documentation showing whether they are vaccinated for the following vaccinations in line with the CDC immunization schedule:

  • COVID-19 vaccine
  • Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine
  • Meningococcal A (MenACWY) vaccine
  • Polio vaccine
  • Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine
  • Varicella vaccine (chicken pox)

U-M students who are not vaccinated with any of the above six (6) vaccinations may be asked to submit an attestation that states that they are not vaccinated and understand they may be subject to additional public health protocols should there be a public health need.

More information will be provided to those applying for on-campus housing and on our U-M Health Response website.

For a list of other recommended immunizations for students and how to submit your immunization records to U-M, go to the University Health Service (UHS) website.

You may want to arrange for a physical exam with your home health care provider and update immunizations at that time, but a physical exam is not required by the university. (Athletic teams or clubs may have different requirements.)
