As stated in the Loma Linda University Handbook, “Loma Linda University is committed to preventing communicable disease transmission among its faculty, staff, students, and the patients they serve through a program that includes education, immunizations, safe environments, and provision for special protective measures where scientific literature identifies a risk of transmission.”
It is the responsibility of all Loma Linda University students to remain up-to-date on all required vaccinations. Exceptions may include students whose entire program is completed off campus.
If immunizations or TB screening requirements become out of date, a health hold will be placed on the student’s registration portal. Please allow 2-3 business days for processing to clear registration holds. If submitting documentation, delays may occur if these are incomplete or inaccurate.
Current students are able to renew their annual Tuberculosis screening, receive booster shots and vaccinations at Student Health Service at no cost if currently enrolled in the Risk Management Student Health Plan.
Reminders for Current Students:
Current students are required to have annual Tuberculosis screening. Effective June, 2021, the annual surveillance is a T-SPOT blood test.
If you test positive, you will complete the TB Screening form and submit this information to Student Health Service.
Please note: If you have tested negative in the past and your T-SPOT blood test is newly positive, you will need to submit a completed TB Screening form as well as a current chest x-ray.
If you received your T-SPOT blood test outside of Student Health Service, you can submit a copy of your results to Student Health Service via one of the following:
- Fax: (909) 558-0433
- E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Mail: Student Health Service
