Immunizations

At UHCS:

We provide the following immunizations: Tetanus booster, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A, Influenza(during influenza vaccination season), Meningitis, HPV and MMR (measles, mumps, rubella). Costs for immunizations can be found on our fees page. We do not bill insurance, but will provide you with a receipt that you can send to your insurance for re-imbursement. You should check with your insurance carrier to see if they will cover immunizations given at UHCS.

We can give you information about what immunizations you may need, if you provide us with a list of the immunizations you have had and when they were given. We can also give you information about Public Health clinics or travel clinics to get immunizations that we do not have at UHCS.
