FREE FLU VACCINE

Student Health is now offering free flu shots to all VCU students.  The flu vaccine is safe and does not cause the flu.  Students can get their flu shots during walk-in immunization hours or immediately following a scheduled medical appointment.

Student Health encourages ALL students to get the flu vaccine, especially those at high risk for flu complications, such as students with asthma, diabetes, and other chronic health issues.

Health Alert: HEPATITIS A

Frozen strawberries from Egypt used by Tropical Smoothie Café have been linked to recent cases of hepatitis A in Virginia.

If you had a smoothie with frozen strawberries from Tropical Smoothie in the last 50 days, monitor for symptoms of hepatitis A: jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), fever, fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, dark urine, and light-colored stools.  If symptoms develop, seek medical care and stay home from work, especially if you are employed in food services.

If you had a smoothie with frozen strawberries from Tropical Smoothie from August 5 to August 8, visit your medical provider to discuss options to prevent hepatitis A (vaccine or immune globulin).

Health Alert: ZIKA VIRUS

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued travel alerts for countries where Zika virus is prevalent.  Florida is the first state in the continental US where local transmission of Zika from mosquitoes is being reported.  

  • The majority of people who are infected with the Zika virus do not become ill.  If symptoms develop, they are usually mild and include fever, rash, painful joints, and/or conjunctivitis.  
  • Zika infection has also been linked to a birth defect called microcephaly.  The CDC has issued recommendations advising pregnant women to avoid travel to areas where Zika virus is occurring.  
  • The Zika virus is primarily spread by infected mosquito bites to people. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best form of prevention for those traveling to an area where Zika virus is occurring.  
  • Zika infection can also occur through sexual transmission from a male or female partner.  Pregnant women with sexual partners who live in or have traveled to areas with Zika should abstain from sex or use condoms during sex every time.

Immunization Requirements

All incoming students will need to provide documentation of their required immunizations.  BE SURE TO COMPLETE THE CORRECT CERTIFICATE OF IMMUNIZATION!


Student Health is cashless!

Only major credit cards, debit cards, and Rambucks are accepted as payment methods.


Take-Care-Of-Yourself Checklist

It's a good idea to have a few self-care items in your dorm room for minor illnesses. Consider keeping a small supply of the following items (which are available at low prices through the Student Health Pharmacy):

  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandaids
  • A digital thermometer
  • Pain relievers, like ibuprofen (Advil) and acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • Benadryl for allergic reactions
  • Cough and cold medications

The Well

The Wellness Resource Center empowers all students to move toward optimal health by finding a balance for all aspects of wellness.

Our one-on-one consultations and presentations extend to topics such as alcohol and other drugs, smoking cessation, nutrition, disordered eating/body image, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence, stress management, and sexual health.

We also offer an array of volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved around campus.


Students with Disabilities

VCU students who have a documented disability and require special accommodations can contact Disability Support Services. Health Science students should contact the Division for Academic Success for assistance.‌
