infection and should submit documentation of either skin or blood
testing for TB, done within 6 months of entry into OCC Housing. Those with
a previous positive TB test are recommended to submit documentation of a chest

How To Comply With The OCC Housing Immunization Recommendations:
Be prepared! Gather all the info you will need to complete your recommendations online.
Sign in to the
Student Health Portal.
Once you are logged in, from the Home Page, click on the My Forms tab, and complete the "1. Housing Clearance Consent" form, "2. Meningitis Information" form, "3. TB Risk Assessment" form, and "4. OCC Housing Immunizations" form.
Enter all the requested dates and immunization information.

You can check your clearance status from the banner on the Home Page of the Student Health Portal.
How To Obtain Copies of Your Immunization Records:
Your vaccination record (sometimes referred to as your immunization record) provides a history of all the vaccines you received as a child and adult. These records come in different forms, but the more common examples include: the "yellow" card (i.e., International Certificate of Vaccination); immunization records maintained by your primary care physician or other licensed healthcare provider either in electronic or hard copy format; and records maintained by your elementary or high school.
Immunization Registries: Another potential source for obtaining copies of your immunization records is an Immunization Registry. These registries are secure computer systems that store children's immunization records and can only be used by doctors, hospitals, public health departments and other selected programs that serve children. All 50 states have immunization registries (the California Immunization Registry is referred to as CAIR).
If the student does not have a copy of their official immunization records including TB screening or testing, they must contact their primary care physician/licensed healthcare provider who can complete the OCC IZ Worksheet For Outside Providers 22-23.pdf or contact the OCC Student Health Center at 714-714-7705.
To upload your immunizations directly into your SHC electronic health record via the Student Health Portal, please follow the instructions shown above in the section entitled How To Comply With The OCC Housing Immunization Recommendations. If you experience problems related to uploading your records via the portal, please call the SHC at 714-714-7705.
