WSCC Health Programs Immunization Requirements

Due to your potential risk for exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, you may be at risk of acquiring Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection, measles, mumps, rubella, or varicella (chicken pox). Health Programs students must provide documentation of complete vaccinations or titers from their healthcare provider. For varicella, students with disease history may have their healthcare provider document date of disease.

A student may be exempt from this requirement under one of the following circumstances:

  1. The vaccine is contraindicated for the individual based on guidelines established by manufacturer or Center for Disease Control
  2. Physician judgment based on the individual's medical condition and history – (risk of harm outweighs benefit)
  3. Religious belief or practice – (individual must provide written statement affirmed under penalty of perjury).

Accepted students must submit one form of documentation listed below for each disease following admission to a program.

I. Hepatitis B (HBV):

  • Documentation of three (3) shot dates.
  • Titer showing immunity status to Hepatitis B.
  • Documentation from my health care provider stating reason for contraindication.
  • Signed written statement affirmed under penalty of perjury stating conflict with religious beliefs.

II. MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella):

  • Documentation of two (2) shot dates.
  • Titers showing immunity status to rubella, rubeola and mumps.

  • Signed written statement affirmed under penalty of perjury stating conflict with religious beliefs.

III. Varicella (Chicken Pox):

  • Titer showing immunity status to varicella.
  • History of disease with date documented by health care provider.
  • Documentation from my health care provider stating reason for contraindication.
  • Signed written statement affirmed under penalty of perjury stating conflict with religious beliefs.

Students who provide titers with laboratory values inconsistent with immunity are encouraged to get the vaccinations.
