Prepare for Your Visit

Effective immediately, to be seen in the Student Health Services Clinic, you must present your Wright1 Card for identification purposes.

The 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.

Announcements

Flu Vaccine

The flu vaccine is now available at Student Health Services. Come get vaccinated while supplies last. Bring your health insurance card.

"Flu" is short for influenza, a contagious respiratory illness that infects the nose, throat, and lungs. It can make you feel awful. The 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 age 6 months and older.
