Immunization and Screening

COVID-19 Vaccine

Vaccines are one of the greatest public health achievements of the past century and save an estimated 3 million lives every year. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and Colorado State University Pueblo strongly support vaccination as one of the easiest and most effective tools in preventing diseases that can cause serious illness and even death. For nearly all people, the benefits of preventing disease with a vaccine far outweigh the risks.

Declining to follow The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) immunization schedule for number, space and timing of doses, may endanger an unvaccinated individual's health and others who come into contact with them.

While the Board of Health does not currently require vaccination against COVID19, Colorado State University Pueblo’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy extends this requirement to the COVID-19 vaccination unless an exemption is filed, and voluntarily adopts the principles described in § 25-4-903, C.R.S. (Exemptions from immunization— rules) for the purposes of the University’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.

This requirement applies to all students, faculty and staff at Colorado State University Pueblo. Persons with a recorded immunization exemption may be kept out of school during a disease outbreak; the length of time will vary depending on the type of the disease and the circumstances of the outbreak.

Please complete all required fields and upload the form to Colorado State University Pueblo Wolfpack Wellness Center’s Thunderwolf Health Portal, incomplete forms will not be accepted. All fields are required unless noted optional.

Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Vaccinations

Colorado state law requires that all students enrolled for one or more classes and born on or after January 1, 1957 must provide proof of two vaccinations for measles, mumps and rubella prior to enrollment. The completed Immunization record must:
  • Show proof of two vaccinations for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) given no earlier than 4 days before the students first birthday. There must be at least 28 calendar days between the two vaccinations.
  • Include the day, month and year of vaccinations
  • Be signed by a doctor, nurse, or school official and dated after the last MMR.
  • Be translated into English

Note: Immunization form may be completed at csupueblo.studenthealthportal.com. Your legal completed immunization form can be uploaded after completing the form.

Note: If laboratory evidence is used for proof of immunity, the test result(s) must be attached (showing range of immunity). CSU-Pueblo Wolfpack Wellness Center will not accept a statement by a doctor or parent stating that a student had the disease. You must have documentation of vaccination or a laboratory test of immunity. If you fail to submit acceptable documents within 14 DAYS of your first semester, a hold will be placed on your registration. Please take this form to your physician or previous school for completion and proof of immunizations.

This vaccine is NOT offered at Wolfpack Wellness Center. For information regarding this vaccine, please contact your physician or Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment 719.583.4300.

Although this is not a required vaccine, it is strongly recommended that students have it. Here are some guidelines to consider:
  • Entering college students who elect to decrease their risk for meningococcal disease
  • Students 30 years of age or under who request vaccination in order to decrease their risk of disease (and who are not pregnant). The highest priority should be for students 18 to 24 years of age. Students 25 years of age or older have a much lower risk of disease.
  • Students with medical conditions that compromise immunity (e.g., HIV, absent spleen, antibody deficiency)
  • Students traveling to areas of the world with endemic meningococcal disease (primarily sub-Saharan Africa)
