Those individuals at high risk of complications (see below) if they become ill with the flu are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

    • All children ages 6 months to 4 years old
    • Children and adults with chronic pulmonary, cardiovascular, metabolic or other disorders (i.e., asthma, diabetes)
    • Persons ages 50 years and older
    • Pregnant women
    • Household contacts and caregivers of children ages younger than 5 years old and adults ages 50 yrs and older, especially contacts of children less than 6 months old

    The cost of the flu shot is $20 unless it is covered by your insurance.

    MMR Vaccination

    The Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH) requires all university students to have 2 doses of the Measles, Mumps, Rubella vaccine (MMR) or provide laboratory evidence of immunity. You may have your physician complete the State Health Immunization Requirement Form to document your MMR information. The vaccine is usually available at your physician's office or your local health department. The Health Center offers the MMR vaccine for $80.

    Medical or Religious Exemptions

    Hawaii State Health laws provide immunization exemptions for bona fide religious or medical reasons only. Exemptions can only be applied to the MMR requirement and NOT tuberculosis clearance. In the event of a measles outbreak on campus, students with exemptions will be excluded from attending classes or other campus activities until the outbreak has cleared.

    1. A medical exemption may be granted to SPECIFIC VACCINES.
    2. A U.S. licensed physician (MD or DO) must state in writing that receiving a specific vaccine would endanger the individual's life or health, and specify the reason based on valid medical contraindications.
    3. The physician must state the length of time during which the vaccine would endanger the individual's health or life.
    4. The exemption certificate must be signed by the physician on the physician's printed stationery.
    A religious exemption may be granted provided the criteria on the religious exemption form are met. The completed Religious Exemption form should be sent to the Health Center.
