News & Announcements
Student Health Services will be closed on July 4th and July 5th. We will reopen on Monday, July 8, 2019. If you need assistance, please refer to our "Forms and Resources" tab for local health care facilities.
Last patient sign-in at the registration desk is 30 minutes prior to clinic closure. Occasionally,we must stop accepting patient sign-ins earlier if the number of students currently registered and waiting exceeds the clinic closing time.
FLU VACCINES ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES: IT'S NOT TOO LATE!
"Flu" is short for influenza, a contagious respiratory illness that infects the nose, throat and lungs. It can make you feel awful. Best way to protect yourself from getting the flu? Get an annual flu shot. You can have the flu for 1 to 4 days before you start feeling sick. This means that you may be able to infect someone else before you even know you have the flu, not just while you are feeling symptoms. The CDC recommends a seasonal influenza vaccination every year for everyone 6 months old and older.

SHS is closely monitoring Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) information on the Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa and the reported case in Texas, and is following the recommendations from the CDC, World Health Organization, and the American College of Health Association.
The risk of exposure to Ebola in the United States or at Wright State is very low.
"There is very little risk of Ebola exposure in the United States," said Leatha Ross, director of student health services at Wright State. "At the campus level, we feel it's best to monitor the situation and be prepared, but we do not feel there's any reason for the Wright State community to be alarmed."
At this time, the CDC has recommended no additional monitoring, but does recommend postponing unnecessary education-related travel. Wright State officials will continue to monitor the latest information from the CDC and take action when necessary.
