Frequently Asked Questions
Does MJC offer health insurance for students?
No, MJC does not offer insurance to students. You can obtain more information about insurance options through Covered California.
Where can students get tested for sexually-transmitted infections?
You can get tested through your healthcare provider, Planned Parenthood, or through your local public health department through California's Family PACT program. Limited testing may be available through MJC Health Services.
Do students need to make an appointment?
At this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, services are limited and Health Services is requiring all students who visit the office such as for the doctor clinic on Thursdays at West Campus to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. We are able to provide over-the-counter products on a drop-in basis. This is coordinated over the phone to follow our protocol for student eligibility. Our phone number and hours are posted on the main page of the website and our office door.

When can I get my TB test read?
For more information, please refer to the TB Screenings Information.
What is the cost for immunizations and titers?
Please refer to the current Fee Schedule.
Can I get all my immunizations/screenings at once?
It will depend on which immunizations you need. The nurse will review this with you. Please have documentation of any previous immunizations available, if possible.
Why should I have a MJC student ID card and a current semester sticker?
The student ID card determines whether you are a student at MJC and the semester sticker tells us that you have paid your health fee. Health Services is not funded by general funds like other departments; we are funded by the health fee only. If you do not have a student ID, please show us another ID and a screen shot/printout of your current MJC class schedule showing a $0 balance.
Is there a doctor available on campus?
Yes, MJC Health Services is in partnership with the Stanislaus County Residency Program. We have a doctor available some Tuesdays and every Thursday on West Campus to see students. Students must be seen by a nurse either in-person or remotely first in order to sign up for a visit with the doctor.
Are any services available to faculty and staff of the college?
Tuberculosis (TB) screenings and over-the-counter products are available for free.
Can I call in for my test results?
Due to confidentiality laws, no test results of any kind can be given over the phone. Walk-ins to see the nurses will be necessary for reviewing the results.
Where can I view the requirements for my program (Health Clearances)?
Please review your academic program's health clearance page.
