The University of California system will require incoming students to get full vaccinations to enroll by 2017, but they still will be able to seek waivers for personal, religious or health reasons.

UC Irvine already mandates vaccinations because individual campuses are allowed to set their own rules.

The systemwide mandate is part of a three-year plan to expand vaccination requirements, but the proposal was planned long before the recent measles outbreak tied to Disneyland, UC spokeswoman Brooke Converse said.
