Students who are interested in receiving the Flu vaccine and/or HPV vaccine can call UHS at 585-275-2662 to schedule an appointment.
It is not too late to receive the flu vaccine to protect you from the flu this winter/spring. UHS does not have any clinics scheduled at this time. Calling UHS to schedule an appointment is the best way to get a flu shot.
UHS also offers HPV vaccine. This vaccine is given in three doses with Dose 2 given 1-2 months after Dose 1 and Dose 3 given 6 months after the first dose. Receiving all three doses will provide you with the best protection from cancers caused by HPV and from other HPV-related diseases. When you receive HPV vaccine at UHS, we will schedule an appointment for the next dose of the vaccine before you leave. You will receive a text reminder a few days before your appointment.
Paying for Flu Vaccine and HPV Vaccine
When you receive a flu shot at UHS, we will bill the cost to your health insurance plan. Many insurance plans cover the cost of a flu shot. If your plan does not cover the cost, we can bill the cost to your tuition billing statement. The UR Student Health Insurance Plan (Aetna) covers the cost of the flu vaccine.
The charge for HPV vaccine will be billed to your health insurance plan. Before you receive HPV vaccine at UHS, please check to see if your plan covers the cost of the three doses of vaccine here at the University Health Service. Some plans cover the cost where the student lives, but not here in Rochester. Due to the cost of each dose, we want you to be sure your insurance plan covers the cost. The UR Student Health Insurance Plan (Aetna) covers the cost of all three doses of the vaccine. If you are on another insurance plan and your plan does not cover the cost of the vaccine, you will be financially responsible for payment.
