*Higher risk include travel to or living in South and Central America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East; prior positive TB test; or exposure to someone with active TB disease.


A student may be exempted from any requirements in this policy as described below:

  • Medical Exemption: due to a medical condition for which an Approved Vaccine presents a significant risk of a serious adverse reaction. Any medical exemption must be verified by a certified or licensed healthcare professional.
  • Religious Exemption: due to either (i) a person's sincerely held religious belief, observance, or practice, which includes any traditionally recognized religion, or (ii) beliefs, observances, or practices which an individual sincerely holds and that occupy a place of importance in that individual's life, comparable to that of traditionally recognized religions.


  • Students will be in compliance with the applicable requirements once proof of vaccine(s) has been verified or a student has received a test result (titer) showing acceptable immunity levels to the infectious disease targeted.
  • Students may also comply through a properly completed and verified exemption.

Immunization Verification

  1. Student Health & Wellness Services (SHWS) participates in the California Immunization Registry (CAIR), whereby immunization information can be verified for all CPP students immunized in the State of California.
  2. If SHWS is unable to verify in CAIR database, students must submit proof of vaccine through an upload to MyHealthPortal. Documents will ONLY be accepted if submitted through the health portal. Do not mail in, bring in person or email documents to CPP Student Health.
    1. Log in to MyHealthPortal, click on the “Medical Clearances” section to begin:
      1. Enter dates each immunization was administered OR date blood test was done.
      2. Complete/submit TB Screen Risk Form and other digital documents.
  • Upload a copy of your immunization record(s), chest x ray or lab results.
  1. If SHWS is unable to verify using CAIR and student cannot produce required documentation, a titer test may be used to prove immunity to disease for MMR, Varicella and Hepatitis B. A blood sample is taken and tested. If the test is positive, the individual has immunity.
  2. When it is not possible to test for immunity levels, a student may receive the vaccines from Student Health & Wellness Services.
