We see all students regardless of their insurance. Appointments are included in student fees. Additional charges for labs, vaccines, etc. may be paid via cash or credit card.

Students may choose to get the vaccine at home, get the vaccine via an appointment at SHS, or obtain the vaccine with Walgreens on campus at the library Aug 31, Sept 1, Sept 3, Sept 8, Sept 14, or Sept 16. Walgreens will accept your insurance card and process according to your company. Students should submit the proof of vaccine to SHS between Sept 1 and Oct 30 with student ID written on the page.
