Community Members Urged to Check Immunity to Measles: International Scholars Can Be Vaccinated, Tested at Student Wellness Center

By Julia Ann Easley on May 3, 2019 in Student Life

"Updated May 16:

International scholars at UC Davis can be vaccinated for measles or have their immunity tested at the Student Wellness Center.

Margaret Walter, executive director of Student Health and Counseling Services, said the services are being offered as a convenience. They are not free and might be obtained for a lesser cost in the community, she said. 

After meeting yesterday with Yolo County Health Officer Ron Chapman, Walter reported that there was no case of measles in the county. 

Originally posted May 3:

The Davis campus is urging students and employees to check their immunity to measles and consider vaccination after cases led to the recent quarantine of hundreds at UCLA and California State University, Los Angeles.

Student Health and Counseling Services, or SHCS, has posted measles information on its website, and has vaccination appointments available for students. Employees are encouraged to check with their health care provider.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, recommends that adults and college students who do not have evidence of immunity be vaccinated."
