Student Health and Well-Being


You have access to a full range of vaccines offered by Student Health, including those required by the university. Call 803-777-9511.

Help Fight the Flu 

Protect yourself this season by receiving your Flu vaccine. Student Health is administering the Flu vaccine in the Center for Health and Well-Being.  A limited supply of vaccines are available on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone interested in getting the vaccination can make an appointment 

The vaccine is available to students, faculty and staff at no cost as long as you upload your insurance card to MyHealthSpace. If insurance cards are not uploaded or you have Medicare, a $40 charge will be posted to your Bursar accounts. Medicare members will need to file with Medicare to be reimbursed.

Alternate locations to receive the Flu vaccine are at your local CVS, Walgreens, Health Department, or your Primary Care Physicians' office.  Please call either location to ensure that they are currently offering the vaccine and to inquire about out-of-pocket cost.


Required Immunizations

You'll need two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR), or positive blood titer reports. Please record these in the "Medical Clearances" section on myhealthspace

You'll need the meningococcal vaccine to prevent meningitis if you are younger than 21. You must have received at least one meningococcal vaccine after your 16th birthday to satisfy this requirement. Please record these in the "Medical Clearances" section on myhealthspace
