Health requirements can be completed at any health facility, but we encourage using
designated ProHealth Care sites. These facilities manage health requirements for all
of WCTC's School of Health and are most familiar with our forms. If you go to another
site, be sure they follow the timing of necessary tests and vaccinations as explained
on the health requirement form.
Our clinical partners are requiring the COVID-19 vaccine or an approved medical or
religious exemption. Please ensure you are fully vaccinated by the start of class.
Your last immunization needs to be completed two weeks prior to the first day of class
to ensure immunity. The booster is not required at this time.
Individuals who are not fully vaccinated or do not have an approved WCTC exemption
will need to drop the class. Documentation of the COVID-19 vaccine includes either
documentation from the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR) or a signed letter from
the healthcare provider. A copy of the vaccination card is not an approved form of documentation.
Vaccine Waiver Information
Reasonable accommodations may be available for students with documented disabilities
and/or sincerely held religious beliefs. Students seeking accommodation due to documented
disability should contact the Student Accessibility Office. Students seeking accommodation due to a sincerely held religious belief should complete
the Religious Exemption Request Form.
A flu vaccine is required for all students who are scheduled to be in a clinical site

Proof of a 2-step Tuberculin skin test must be completed within 12 months prior to
the start of class.
Please note that a 2-step TB skin test means that you get two skin tests, one to three
weeks apart. This will require four trips to your doctor: two trips are to receive
the skin tests, and two trips are to have the skin tests read.
If you have a positive TB skin test or have received the BCG vaccination, you will
then need to have a Quantiferon blood test drawn. The blood test must be drawn within
one year of the start of clinical. The Quantiferon blood test can be done in place
of the 2-step TB test, but the test is generally more expensive.
Failure to comply with the above health requirements will result in the student being
withdrawn from the class.
