The mission of The Master’s University Health Center is to empower students to think Biblically when caring for their physical health.
The Health Center is located on campus in Vider Administrative Services, next to HR, and is open Monday through Friday 9:00am to 3:00pm (excluding holidays). For after-hour care please contact the 24-hour nurse hotline at 1-(800) 634-7629.
The Health Center is not a first responder and is not designed to provide medical treatment beyond basic first aid. Students may come to the Health Center to obtain over-the-counter medications for temporary symptom relief.
We are pleased to provide you with this summary of the 2022 – 2023 Student Health Insurance Plan, which is fully compliant with the Affordable Care Act.
Immunizations The California Department of Public Health requires all students who are enrolled in college to submit proof of immunizations. This documentation must be submitted to the Health Center 30 days prior to the start of classes. The documentation must include the month and year that each vaccine was given. Please provide the Health Center with proof of your immunization records. If you waive your responsibility to some, you are still required to submit records for any immunizations you have not waived.
2 doses of Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), or a blood test verifying immunity to MMR. Provide a copy of blood test results if you choose the second option.
3 Hepatitis B
2 doses of Varicella (chickenpox)
1 dose of Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (TDaP) in the last 10 years
Tuberculosis PPD/Skin Test, or blood test within the last year. If the student’s result is positive they will need to have a chest x-ray with documentation of clearance before admittance. The PPD skin test takes three days to complete so plan accordingly. We are currently offering a TB/Tuberculosis screenings inserted in the New Student Health Forms. The questions will determine if the student is required to show a current TB/Tuberculosis test result.
COVID-19 shot is not required.
An annual flu vaccine is recommended.
The meningococcal vaccine is recommended. Please check the date of your last meningitis vaccine (it must be on or after the 16th birthday). If the student had the first dose before their 16th birthday, they must get another vaccine for full coverage.

Meningococcal disease is a serious illness caused by Neisseria meningitis bacteria. It manifests most commonly as meningitis, an infection of the fluid and membranes of the spinal cord and brain, which can cause brain damage, disability and death if left untreated. Septicemia, an infection of the bloodstream, can also be caused by meningococcal bacteria. Meningitis sometimes results from a viral infection as well.
Anyone can get meningococcal disease. It is most common in infants less than one year of age and people 16-21 years. College freshmen living in dorms are at an increased risk. About 100 cases occur on college campuses in the U.S. each year, with 5-15 deaths.
Common symptoms of meningitis include stiff neck, headache, fever, sensitivity to light, sleepiness, confusion and seizures.
It can be treated with antibiotics, but treatment must be started early. Despite treatment, 10-15% of meningitis cases are fatal. Another 10-20% cause long-term consequences.
A meningococcal vaccine is available from your doctor or travel health clinic. It protects against four of the five most common types of meningitis. Vaccine protection lasts 3-5 years and can prevent 50%-70% of cases on college campuses.
The meningococcal vaccine may cause reactions such as pain or fever. Discuss contraindications and rare but serious side effects with your healthcare provider.
Meningococcal disease is uncommon. In the United States, there are about 2,500 cases (1-2 cases for every 100,000 people) each year, including 300 to 400 in California. Of 14 million students enrolled in colleges nationwide, approximately 100 are infected with the disease each year.
A diagnosis is commonly made by growing the bacteria from spinal fluid or blood. Identifying the bacteria is important for selecting the best antibiotics.
Overall, undergraduate students have a lower risk than the non-student population (1.4 cases per 100,000 people per year). However, college freshmen living in dormitories have a modestly increased rate (4.6 cases per 100,000 people per year). Reasons for this increase are not fully understood but probably relate to students living in close proximity to one another.
The bacteria are transmitted through close person-to-person contact, in secretions from the nose and throat. They are not spread by casual contact or by simply breathing the air near an infected person. The bacteria can live outside the body for only a few minutes; so if the germs contaminate a desk or book, they soon die and won’t infect a person who touches it later.
As many as 2 in 10 people carry the bacteria in the back of the nose and throat at any given time, especially in winter. Why only a very small number of those who have the bacteria in their nose and throat develop the disease, while others remain healthy, is not understood.
You can protect yourself by maintaining good health and hygiene. As a general recommendation, you should wash your hands frequently. Avoid sharing materials that make mouth contact, such as eating utensils, bottles, cigarettes or lip balm. Contact a healthcare provider immediately if you are in close contact with someone who is known or suspected to have a meningococcal infection.
In 2005, the American College Health Association and Centers for Disease Control both issued a new recommendation to parents, students and the campus community. This recommendation states that all first year students living in residence halls should be immunized against meningococcal disease. Other college students under the age of 25 who wish to reduce the risk of infection may choose to be vaccinated. The CDC also recommends meningococcal vaccination for adolescents entering high school and pre-adolescents, 11-12 years of age. This was recommended after the new conjugate vaccine was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
