Immunizations

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

The COVID-19 vaccine requirement will be enforced this fall 2021 for students who live in on-campus housing at UH Mānoa and UH Hilo because of the close communal contact. Please send your COVID-19 Vaccine and MCV Vaccine documentation to us as soon as possible to be cleared for housing. Please send all sensitive information using UH File Drop to recipient: uhhsms@hawaii.edu, Fax: (808) 932-7368, or mail to UH Hilo Student Medical Services 200 W. Kawili street, Campus Center Room 212, Hilo, HI 96720. COVID-19 Medical Exemption Form (PDF) and COVID-19 Religious Exemption Form (PDF) will be available for student residents. Other limitations may apply to the unvaccinated, but they will not be prevented from enrolling in on-campus classes. New safety guidelines will be released outlining practices to protect all students and employees. Face coverings will be required while indoors on campus and all students, employees and visitors will still be required to utilize the LumiSight UH health check app, which now includes the ability to easily demonstrate vaccination status.

Please be aware that no TB can be placed in between COVID shots and must be four weeks after your last COVID vaccine or before the starting of the COVID vaccine and TB must be done before any "live vaccines" such as MMR and Varicella or four weeks after your last live vaccine. All other vaccines can be done without regard to timing of the COVID vaccines and TB placement.

HW Holds

Having an HW hold makes students eligible to register for online classes only. To register for in-person or hybrid classes, you must submit all outstanding health clearances to the UH Hilo Student Medical Services Department. The Health Requirements Form (PDF) is available to ensure all clearances are completed. Please contact the Student Medical Services Department for questions about which clearances are still outstanding.
