As stated in the Loma Linda University Handbook, “Loma Linda University is committed to providing a healthy environment for learning through a comprehensive program to prevent communicable disease using the latest scientific information and procedures. This includes educating individuals regarding the reduction of communicable disease transmission, and the need for immunizations.” Current students may be required by the university, their individual program, or by their school to receive an Influenza vaccine or another immunization while enrolled as a student on campus.
It is the responsibility of all Loma Linda University students to remain up-to-date on all required vaccinations. (Exceptions include non-degree students and students whose entire program is completed off campus.) If immunizations become out of date, a hold will be placed on the student’s registration portal preventing the completion of the registration process.
Current students are able to renew their annual TB skin test, receive booster shots and vaccinations at Student Health Service at no cost if currently enrolled in the Risk Management Student Health Plan. Risk Management will not cover immunizations required to complete your pre-entrance health requirements.
