Student Health Services (SHS) provides diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries to MU students. We provide many of the routine services offered at primary healthcare offices including laboratory studies, immunizations, prescriptions, allergy injections, specialist and radiology referrals.
Healthcare services are available to all students who are actively enrolled in classes. Our staff of nurses and nurse practitioners are available daily for healthcare services by appointment only. Please call us at 703-284-1610 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. Additionally, a physician and a psychiatric nurse practitioner are available by appointment weekly. There is no charge to be seen by one of our providers.
As a reminder the COVID-19 vaccine has been mandated by the university. All students, staff, and faculty members must be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption.
Members of the university community who are 18 years and older and at increased risk of exposure and transmission due to living or working in an institutional setting (on-campus) can now receive the Pfizer booster to the COVID-19 vaccine at SHS, regardless of which original vaccine they received. Individuals should evaluate the risks and benefits and related information before receiving a booster shot. The university is not requiring the booster shot at this time. Here are guidelines related to each vaccine:
- Pfizer: booster may be administered at least 6 months after completion of the primary series.
- Moderna: booster may be administered at least 6 months after completion of the primary series.
- Janssen (Johnson & Johnson): booster may be administered at least 2 months after completion of the single dose.
To schedule your booster shot appointment, please call or email SHS and have with you the name of your previous vaccine and the date of your last dose.
