**NOTE ABOUT IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS »

In 2008, the Portland chapter of the Center for Disease Control contacted Salt regarding a new mandate that requires all post- secondary students to have proof of a two shot series of the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine. Before attending classes at Salt, you must provide Salt with an official vaccination record. Anyone who fails to do so will not be permitted to attend class.

You most likely had an MMR vaccination when you were one-year-old or older. If this is the case, you will need a booster or second shot. You will then need to provide Salt with documentation of the original vaccination as well as the booster or second shot. This documentation must state the month, day, and year of the shots and the type of shots given.

If you did not have an MMR shot as a baby, you will need to have two shots — the first shot by the first day of class, and the second shot twenty-eight days later. Again, this documentation must state the month, day, and year of the shots and the type of shots given.

Your health care provider may administer the vaccine. If you are unable to see your health care provider or you do not have a health care provider, there are a number of health clinics that administer the vaccine in Portland, such as:

Bayside Employee Health Center (207) 780-6631
Portland Community Free Clinic (207) 874-8982

Please contact the health care provider/clinic that will administer your shot to find out what, if any, paperwork you will need to bring to your appointment.

please note »
Maine state law makes very few exceptions. In the case of sincere religious or philosophical objections, or if you are pregnant, please contact Salt staff.
