- State of Hawai'i tuberculosis clearance guidelines
ALL students enrolled at LCC must have tuberculosis (TB) clearance. A negative TB skin test (PPD - Mantoux) within one year prior to your enrollment is required. Skin test results must be read in 48 to 72 hours. If positive, a chest x-ray is required. TB tests performed outside the United States, or skin testing using methods/materials other than PPD will not be accepted. Once you have met your TB clearance requirement, your clearance is valid for four years of continuous enrollment.
- Documentation of two measles, mumps, and rubella immunizations
Two doses of measles vaccine are required, with at least one of the two being an MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella). First dose must have been given as of January 1, 1968, AND on or after the first birthday. A second dose must have been given at least 4 weeks after the first dose. Measles, Mumps, and Rubella immunizations may be waived if: 1) Student was born before 1957, or 2) Serologic evidence of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella.
Persons claiming religious exemption to immunization requirements must sign a waiver form and provide a letter claiming the exemption status from a recognized religious organization. There are NO religious exemptions to Tuberculosis clearance requirements.
The LCC Student Health Center offers the TB test as well as the MMR immunizations. The TB test is offered during normal clinic hours, except on Thursdays. The MMR immunizations are offered during normal clinic hours. For women of child-bearing age, the MMR vaccine is only given while on menses, on some form of birth control, or with a negative pregnancy test on the day of administration. No appointment is necessary.
