Minnesota Law (Minn. Stat.135A.14) requires students enrolled in a public or private post-secondary school in Minnesota be immunized against tetanus and diphtheria (Tdap/Td). The most recent vaccination must have been within the last ten years.
Minnesota Law (Minn. Stat.135A.14) also requires students be immunized against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR). All doses of MMR vaccine must have been received after the age of 12 months.
Students are exempt from this law if they were born before 1957, graduated from a Minnesota high school after 1996, enrolled in one class and not housed on campus or enrolled in online classes only.
To provide this information, students must complete an Immunization Form within the first 45 days of classes. Without this form, you will not be able to register for subsequent semesters. Please note that holds are not immediately removed.

Finding Your Vaccination Record
Your vaccination record (immunization record) provides a history of all the vaccinations you received. Many states have an immunization information system (IIS) that is accessible to individuals. Visit the CDC IIS Information page to find your state’s information.
Docket is an app that you can download on your smartphone or mobile device to access your immunization record.
