International Student ImmuniZation Information

All international students are required to provide proof of vaccination for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) and are required to be tested for Tuberculosis (TB) before starting classes at SLCC.

MMR

Measles, mumps, and rubella are serious diseases that have caused many fatalities worldwide.

Measles: Measles virus causes fever, headache, muscle pains, loss of appetite and swollen glands. It can lead to deafness, painful swelling of the testicles and ovaries, sterility, and meningitis.

Rubella: Rubella virus causes rash, arthritis (mostly in women), and mild fever. If a female contracts rubella while pregnant, a miscarriage could occur, or serious birth defects may be caused.

These diseases spread from person to person through the air. You can easily catch them by being around someone who is already infected.

The MMR vaccine is safe, effective, and can protect you from all three of these dangerous diseases.

Tuberculosis (TB)

Tuberculosis is a disease caused by germs that spread from person to person through the air. TB usually affects the lungs, but it can also affect other parts of the body, such as the brain, the kidneys, or the spine. A person with TB can die if they do not receive treatment.

TB is spread through germs that are put into the air when a person with TB of the lungs or throat coughs, sneezes, or speaks. These germs can stay in the air for several hours, depending on the environment. People who breathe the infected air can become infected; this is called latent TB infection.

There are tests that can be used to help detect TB infection: a skin test or TB blood test. The TB blood test measures how the patient’s immune system reacts to the germs that cause TB.

Why it is important to provide immunization requirements

Failure to comply with these requirements will result in an academic hold placed on your account which prevents you from registering for classes, viewing your grades, or obtaining your official academic transcripts.

Receiving or confirming these immunizations ensures that Salt Lake Community College is taking preventative steps to keeping our community safe and healthy. If you have questions or concerns about receiving these immunizations, we suggest scheduling an appointment with our Family Nurse Practitioner to receive answers.
