Immunization Information

 You only need to get the REQUIRED immunizations (vaccines) listed on this page:

  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
  • Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis)
  • Meningococcal (Menactra)
  • Varicella
  • Hepatitis B

You do not need to get any recommended or travel vaccines.

If you are unable to get any of the required vaccines because they are not available in your country, you will receive any missing required vaccines from the Health Center after you arrive on campus at no charge.

Or, if you think you have had vaccines, but cannot obtain an official record, you can have your blood drawn to prove immunity by titer at the Health Center after you arrive on campus.

The health insurance you have through Williams College will cover any cost associated with any lab testing.
