Health Services provides a variety of immunizations, including:

  • Diphtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis
  • Hepatitis B Vaccine 
  • Human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV)
  • Bacterial Meningitis vaccine - By law, all students are required to have this vaccine at least 10 days prior to enrollment.
  • Flu vaccine

    Availability
    Seasonal flu vaccinations are available at the University Health Clinic for students and faculty and staff members for $25 (cash or check). The immunization vaccines are given from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and no appointment is necessary. Shots will be available while supplies last.

    What is it?
    The trivalent vaccine contains three killed flu virus strains, two strains of type A and one strain of type B. For adults the vaccine is given into the muscle of the upper arm.

    Who should not get the vaccine?
    • Anyone with a severe allergic reaction to eggs or egg products (i.e. hives, swelling of lips/tongue, or breathing difficulties)
    • Anyone with a severe reaction from a prior flu shot (same as above)
    • Anyone younger than 6 months
    • Anyone with a suppressed or altered immune system response (i.e. chemotherapy, corticosteroids medications, HIV/AIDS, Guillain-Barre etc.) needs to consult a physician prior to vaccination. These conditions may cause an inadequate immune response to the vaccine, leaving the person still susceptible to the viruses.
       

​​​​​​​Adverse Reactions
While it is impossible for the vaccine to give you the flu; the most common side effects which can last up to 2 days are:

  • Pain, redness, swelling, bruising and hardness where you got the shot
  • Muscle aches
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
