Measles: What You Should Know

Measles is a highly contagious virus that spreads through the air through coughing and sneezing. Measles starts with fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, and sore throat. It’s followed by a rash that spreads over the body.

Make sure you're protected with the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, available at the Student Health Center. We also offer health exams, assessments, and vaccinations for other diseases. Learn more at cdc.gov.

Welcome to the LU Student Health Center.

Our mission is to promote the health and wellness of the university population by offering quality medical and psychological services to the students of Lamar University and Lamar Institute of Technology. The goal of the Student Health Center is to give you a same-day appointment.
