Stanford encounters vaccine-preventable illness in and out of the lab

In the past two months, there has been one case of chickenpox and one potential measles exposure at Stanford. Vaccination against measles, mumps, and rubella is required for all Stanford students, and vaccination against chickenpox is required for Stanford medical students. While there are no universal vaccination requirements for Stanford faculty and staff, various job-related requirements are based on factors such as patient contact, potential exposure to agents in a lab setting, work with preschoolers and children, and international travel.
