Sounds like you got the standard MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccination. THat is typically required for entering college (if you have not had it or have no documentation to prove you did). You might also have gotten the whooping cough vaccination as well.

The pox... Worst month of my life.
My champaign birthday, just turned 19 that day. I woke up with a blister type of lump on my chest.
I thought i might have burnt myself some how the night before due to the tremendous amount of alcohol i consumed. By noon on my birthday i broke out in the blisters all over my body and suddenly felt horrible- even worse than my hangover.
By 6 pm i was in the emergency room because i thought i was dying.
The doctor looked at me and asked if i ever had chicken pox before. I told him i dont think so.
He said, well happy birthday, you got the pox.
So there i was on my 19th bday,mwith an IV in my arm and in a quarentined room. I spent the night because they wanted to keep me under obs. Due to my age. I guess the older you are when you get the pox, the more severe the reaction.
For certain vaccinations, your doctor can perform a test for evidence of immunity, whether from a prior vaccination or an infection. In the case of varicella (chickenpox), for example, a blood test can show whether or not you’re immune to the disease.
On May 17, 1993, when Jodie was 14 ½ months old, they arrived at Aldermoor Surgery health clinic in Southampton, UK. They agreed to allow Jodie to receive the MMR vaccine and physically signed to refuse the DTaP vaccine and any others.
In January 1998, Jodie and her parents met with Dr. Andrew Wakefield to discuss what was contributing to Jodie’s demise, which started after she was given that vaccine.
Soon after Jodie’s first visit to the Royal Free, Dr. Andrew Wakefield and his colleagues published a paper in The Lancet on February 28, 1998, linking a plausible connection to inflammatory bowel disease, autism, brain damage and the triple MMR vaccine.
They went to request her vaccine record, where Jodie had received the shot and the doctor there said they could not find Jodie’s records. This included records from numerous visits for help following the jab.
The records revealed a disturbing truth that Jodie had been overdosed and was given DTaP and an injected oral polio vaccine.
They found out she was given all of this and then later found another vaccine was given to her, all injected into her through that one shot. They were assured the seven went into her but new records that surfaced several years later revealed an eighth vaccine was given and signed for. The Marchants haven’t publicly revealed what the eighth vaccine is. Due to the sensitivity of the case that is still ongoing, that information is not being published.
