Student Health Services is an on-campus clinic that provides direct, basic medical care to all undergraduate students. Services provided are covered by undergraduate tuition and fees. Student Health Services also serves as a referral source for students needing care beyond that available on campus. Expenses incurred from care provided off campus are the responsibility of the student. Graduate students and continuing students seeking services during the summer may elect to pay the health fee to access Student Health Services.

Fall Semester Flu Vaccine Clinics
Student Health Services will host flu vaccine clinics for UM students, faculty, family members and members of the community in the Farmer Hall meeting room during three upcoming dates. The clinics will be held on Thursday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Wednesday, Oct. 28, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Attendees must bring their health insurance card. Masks must be worn and social distancing guidelines must be adhered to at the clinic. The cost of the vaccine with no health insurance is $25 for UM students and employees, and $30 for family members and members of the community. The vaccine is available at NO COST to insured individuals.
Flu clinic participants should print and fill out a vaccination form and bring it with them to the clinic.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, influenza vaccination will be especially important this upcoming flu season to reduce the impact of respiratory illnesses in the population and resulting burdens on the health care system during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because COVID-19 and the flu share many symptoms, individuals who display flu-like symptoms may be required to quarantine until they receive a negative COVID-19 test. Getting a flu vaccine mitigates this by helping to prevent the onset of symptoms due to the flu.
Required Health Information for New Students residing in U.S.
ALL REQUIRED HEALTH INFORMATION MUST NOW BE SUBMITTED ONLINE.
The Incoming Student Medical Form must be completed online by the student and submitted along with proof of measles immunity uploaded and attached to the form. All required health information is due before the first day of class.
For most students, proof of measles immunity will be a copy of the immunization record indicating two separate dates of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccination. This document can be obtained from the student’s previous school attended, the physician’s office which administered the vaccinations as a child, or the county health department in which the student grew up. If this record is unavailable, proof of measles immunity can be acquired through blood testing (rubeola titer) at a physician’s office. If not immune, the MMR vaccination series must be completed. Even though Varicella (Chicken Pox), Tetanus, Hepatitis B and Meningitis vaccines are not required, they are strongly recommended.
The Incoming Student Medical Form includes a Tuberculosis Risk Questionnaire. A TB test is not required unless the student is determined to be at risk. If required, the student will be contacted by Health Services.
