Student Health Clinic
The University of Northern Iowa Student Health Clinic is closely watching the measles outbreak situation in the US, related to cases linked to Disneyland in California, and in 11 other states.
Immunization to measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) is a requirement for all students who attend the University of Northern Iowa. To comply with this requirement, all students must provide records documenting proof of TWO measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccinations.
Measles (also known as rubeola and hard measles) is a very contagious, vaccine-preventable, viral disease with symptoms like fever, cough, inflammation of the mucus membranes of the nose, inflammation of the eye, and a red area on the skin with raised bumps or rash. It usually occurs in people who have not had the disease before or who are unvaccinated. The best way to prevent measles is to get the MMR vaccinations.
If you have concerns that you have been exposed to a person with the measles, please call the Student Health Clinic Resource nurse at 319-273-5161 during the Student Health Clinic business hours. After hours, call Patient Engagement, formerly known, as Nurse-on-Call, at 319-272-2600. This service is sponsored by Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare. It is best to stay isolated and call a healthcare provider to get guidance on actions to take for your health and those around you, BEFORE you travel to a doctor’s office or Emergency Room, due to the highly contagious nature of measles illness.
