It is a mandate of the Arkansas Department of Health that all students attending colleges and universities in the state show proof of 2 MMR ( measles, mumps rubella) immunizations, immunity to measles, mumps and rubella, a medical or non-medical exemption, or birth before January 1957.

Acceptable proof of immunization is an official immunization record from another educational institution in Arkansas, a licensed medical doctor, or an authorized public health representative, or military service. Documentation must state the vaccine type and dates of vaccine administration must be provided and entered on the record. Terms such as “up-to-date,” ”complete,” “adequate,” etc. are not to be accepted as proof of immunization.

  • In lieu of receiving vaccine; immunity can be shown by providing documented evidence (Such as a letter from the Arkansas Department of Health approving serology as proof of immunity), of appropriate serological testing.

  • Proof that the student has applied for or received a medical or non-medical exemption for those vaccines he/she has not received will be accepted in lieu of receiving vaccine.

  • Proof that the student was born prior to January 1, 1957, will be accepted in lieu of receiving vaccine.

  • Proof that the student has applied for or received a non-medical (religious) exemption will be accepted in lieu of receiving the vaccine. This exemption is granted “ on the grounds that such immunization conflicts with the religious tenets and practices of a recognized church or religious denomination of which said individual is an adherent or member” in accordance with Arkansas Statue. Exemption shall be granted only by the Arkansas Department of Health. The exemption form must have a signature and seal of a Notary Public and a new form must be completed every school year.
