"The Davis campus is urging students and employees to check their immunity to measles and consider vaccination after cases led to the recent quarantine of hundreds at UCLA and California State University, Los Angeles.

Student Health and Counseling Services, or SHCS, has posted measles information on its website, and has vaccination appointments available for students. Employees are encouraged to check with their health care provider.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, recommends that adults and college students who do not have evidence of immunity be vaccinated."
