The Student Health Center provides routine immunizations such as Tetanus, Diphtheria and Hepatitis A and B. In certain circumstances, the Student Health Center offers other immunizations. Please call the Student Health Center at (610) 519-4070 with any questions. Students are financially responsible for the cost of the immunization.
The Student Health Center provides ongoing immunotherapy injections for students who have previously had immunotherapy treatment. Students must present in advance to drop off their serum before they can schedule to receive their allergy shots. The student must also give to the Health Center signed orders from the allergist, and an administration schedule. Allergy shots are given by appointment only and when a physician is on premises. Allergy shots are administered free of charge to Villanova students.
All students need health insurance throughout their term of enrollment at Villanova. All domestic undergraduate matriculated students must either enroll in the school sponsored plan with United Health or waive out of the University sponsored plan by showing proof of comparable coverage. For more information regarding the school sponsored plan, and the enrollment/waiver process, please visit the website www.firststudent.com.
In some cases, students may need to be referred to an off local travel medicine provider in the community.
