Are you interested in receiving the HPV vaccine? Students can receive the vaccine at UHS. Call 585-275-2662 to schedule an appointment.
The UR Student Health Insurance Plan (Aetna) covers the cost of the vaccine. If you are on another insurance plan, please verify your coverage with your insurance company before you receive the vaccine. Some plans do not cover the vaccine when you receive it out of the area in which you live.
The 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. When you receive HPV vaccine at UHS, we will schedule an appointment for the next dose of the vaccine before you leave UHS. You will receive a text reminder a few days before your appointment.
If you have questions about receiving the HPV vaccine at UHS, you can schedule an appointment to speak with your UHS primary care provider or you can call the UHS Health Information Line to speak with a registered nurse. The number to call to schedule an appointment is 585-275-2662. The number to call to speak with a nurse is 585-275-1160.
