Students do not have to verify their immunization status to enroll at St. Louis Community College. However, the Allied Health programs of Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Physical Therapist Assistant, Emergency Medical Services, Child Development Center, Family and Consumer Sciences, and Hospitality Studies have immunization and/or physical examination requirements that are mandatory for admission to clinical sites.
The Vaccine Information Sheets linked below are courtesy of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. They are downloadable in PDF format.
We offer the following to all eligible STLCC students and staff:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Tuberculin Skin Testing (PPD)
- Annual Influenza Vaccine
- Tetanus (Td) (not available at the Forest Park campus)
A minimal fee is charged for each vaccination. Tuberculin Skin Test (PPD) results must be read in Campus Health Services two to three days after the test is given. Therefore, PPDs are not given on Thursdays.
Adult Immunization Referral
Based on their level of risk for exposure and previous disease history, adults may choose to be immunized against other vaccine preventable diseases such as:
- Measles, Mumps and Rubella
- Varicella (Chickenpox)
A referral will be given to the local health department for vaccination against these diseases, as requested.
If you plan to travel internationally, it is recommended that you seek advice about three months prior to your trip. The St. Louis County Department of Health's South County Health Center has a comprehensive travel vaccination clinic that can provide immunizations and recommendations for prophylactic medications based on the area you will be visiting.
You may contact the county's Communicable Disease Control Services at 314-615-1630. You also may visit the National CDC's Travelers’ Health website for the most up-to-date information online.
