Prescriptions

We offer electronic prescribing to several local pharmacies. We also partner with Wegmans in Pittsford, NY to deliver your prescriptions to Nazareth Health and Counseling Services or free. To set up that service, you can either call Wegmans pharmacy, 585-381-1305, or fill out this authorization and payment form and drop it off at our office or fax it to the Wegman's number on the form. We'll call you when your prescription has been delivered and you can pick it up from our office until 4 p.m. weekdays.

Prescription Refills

Please allow 7 days for medication refills. Contact us through the Student Health Portal, contact your pharmacy to request a refill, or call our office at 585-389-2500.

HPV (Gardasil) Vaccine

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.

Now more than ever, it is imperative that all students and employees receive an annual influenza vaccine, unless they have a contraindication to the vaccine. While influenza vaccine does not protect against COVID-19, it may keep many in our community out of healthcare facilities, where they could be at increased risk of infection. Flu vaccine reduces unnecessary healthcare visits and hospitalizations and protects vulnerable populations at high risk of influenza complications. This includes people with underlying conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, those who are immunocompromised, and children under 5 years of age.

We partner with Wegmans to offer free flu vaccine clinics each fall semester for students, faculty, staff, and family members. Family members are welcome to be on campus briefly for a flu shot; this is an exemption from the campus visitor registration policy. (Please bring your health insurance card. If you do not have insurance, you will not be turned away.)

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. Pharmacies near Nazareth:
