Community Health Advisory: Tuberculosis
Student Health Services (SHS) shares this community advisory for informational and awareness purposes only.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health notified LMU that a student has been diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB). Active tuberculosis is a contagious infection, curable if treated properly. The student has begun treatment and the Department of Public Health has determined that the student is no longer contagious and has been cleared to return to campus. The university is working closely with the Department of Public Health and is contacting those who may have been exposed.
LMU and the L.A. Department of Public Health will continue to ensure the health and safety of our community. Please practice good hygiene by covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, frequent handwashing, adequate sleep, and hydration. For further information and resources about tuberculosis, please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/tb/topic/basics/default.htm.

GET YOUR FLU SHOT AT STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES
The flu affects approximately 5% to 20% of U.S. residents annually, with 200,000 people hospitalized for flu-related complications each year. Getting an annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. You should get a flu vaccine now, if you haven’t gotten one already this season. It’s best to get vaccinated before flu begins spreading in your community. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against flu. CDC recommends that people get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. Getting vaccinated later, however, can still be beneficial and vaccination should continue to be offered throughout the flu season, even into January or later. See that you are vaccinated against the flu. Student Health Services provides the flu vaccine to students by appointment only. The cost is $25.
