If you answer "YES" TO EITHER OF THE TWO QUESTIONS BELOW, you will need to satisfy immunization requirements as mandated by the California State Legislature:
- Did you graduate from a California High School BEFORE January 2005?
- Did you graduate from a high school outside of California?
An "Immunization Hold" will be activated on your record and you will not be allowed to register for future quarters until documentation is complete and verified.
There are four ways to meet these requirements:
You may have a blood test (Rubella and Rubeola Titer) that determines if you are immune to both rubeola and rubella, either by past immunizations or by having had both diseases.
You may submit proof of prior immunization and complete the areas as requested on our Required Immunization Form.
Be immunized (you may obtain immunization from your private doctor or public health department and submit proof of same).
Sign a medical or religious waiver. Check the form above for more details.
Proof of immunization can be submitted to Student Health Services (SHS) in one of the following ways:
- By MAIL: Student Health Services, 3801 W. Temple Ave., Pomona, CA, 91768
- By FAX: (909) 869-4425
- In PERSON: Bring proof to the Immunization Desk at Student Health Services, Bldg. 46
If you are unable to obtain the required immunizations from the above sources, you may call Student Health Services at (909) 869-4000 to schedule an immunization appointment. Call the Immunization Hotline for pricing details (909-869-2759). Anyone under the age of 18 will need to bring in a signed minor consent form before services can be given at SHS.
Please discuss with your family doctor the advisability of vaccination from meningococcal disease. Meningococcal disease is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection known to occur more frequently among 18-25 year olds living in close proximity. It is recommended that all incoming residential students consider the Meningococcal Vaccine as a way to reduce their risk for potentially fatal Meningococcal disease. Ask your family doctor about this vaccine. The vaccine is given in a one-dose injection and is available at Student Health Services by appointment. Call the Immunization Hotline for pricing details (909-869-2759).
