We'll call you when your prescription has been delivered and you can pick it up from our office until 4 p.m. weekdays.

HPV (Gardasil) Vaccine

Now available to all Naz students at no cost. Call for an appointment at 585-389-2500. For info: CDC website about HPV.

Flu Vaccine Clinics

Living in close contact with many others can lead to rapid spread of influenza, which typically sickens college students for eight days or more, so it's important to get vaccinated each year. We partner with Wegmans to offer free flu vaccine clinics during the fall semester for students, faculty, staff, and family members. Vaccines are free of charge. (Please bring your health insurance card. If you do not have insurance, you will not be turned away.)

  • Tuesday, September 29, 9am-4pm: GTC
  • Tuesday, October 6, 9am-4pm: GTC
  • Tuesday, October 13, 4pm-8pm: GTC

If you can't make it to an on-campus flu clinic and still need a flu shot, please visit a local pharmacy and take your insurance card with you. Pharmacies near Nazareth:

All contact is confidential. Medical information can be released only with a student's written permission.

Services for Veterans

Medical Excuse Letters
