Immunization Requirement Policy

Students who attend the University of Utah are required to be fully vaccinated against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). With the full FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, the university is also requiring COVID-19 vaccination.  Learn more about the requirements here Immunization Requirements Policy

Due to increased precautions surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus), U of U Student Health is upholding its commitment to keeping you and others safe by introducing some new safeguards for patients.

We are only seeing patients by APPOINTMENT. No walk-ins at this time.

Students in need of vaccines, blood tests, etc. can schedule online or call for an appointment.

Click here to schedule an appointment.

We respectfully ask that before traveling to the clinic for symptoms such as high fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please contact us first at 801-581-6431.  We can then discuss your symptoms with you and address any concerns over the phone to determine if a visit, or further testing, is necessary.

You may also message your provider via the patient portal.  Simply log on to your account, select "Messages", then your provider.  For more general questions, select the "Ask a Nurse" provider. Messages will be answered in the order they are received during normal business hours.

The Student Health Center carries the Moderna COVID vaccine.

The Moderna vaccine is an mRNA vaccine and requires a booster dose 28 days after the initial dose. Full immunity is reached 2 weeks after the second dose.  Moderna is approved for those 18 years and older. The Student Health Center strongly encourages and recommends a COVID-19 vaccination.  Fully vaccinated people are currently not required to quarantine after exposure.  COVID vaccines are FREE and there is no charge for administration.  You may schedule online or call our office at 801-581-6431 to schedule an appointment for the vaccine or if you have any questions regarding the vaccine.
