Immunizations

Free Flu Vaccine

Student Health is seeing an increase in flu cases on campus.  Protect yourself by getting a free flu shot at either clinic location.  The flu vaccine is safe and does not cause the flu.  

  • Students can get their flu shots during walk-in immunization hours or immediately following a scheduled medical appointment.
  • Student Health encourages ALL students to get the flu vaccine, especially those at high risk for flu complications, such as students with asthma, diabetes, and other chronic health issues.
Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage

There is a national shortage of Yellow Fever vaccine until mid-2018.  For students requiring the vaccine for travel, the following Richmond locations still have doses available:

  • Publix Pharmacy at Nuckols Place (5400 Wyndham Forest Dr): Call 804-591-4350 for an appointment.
  • Henrico Doctor's Hospital Travel Clinic (7700 E. Parham Rd): Call 804-747-5627 for an appointment.
Submitting Immunization Records Via the Web Portal

Students are encouraged to use our online system to submit vaccine records.  Students should complete an electronic Certificate of Immunization AND upload supporting documentation through the Student Health Web Portal.  Please read detailed Web Portal Instructions for Submitting Vaccine Records here.
