In-person vaccination appointments are temporarily suspended. At this time, it is not advisable to visit a medical facility unless absolutely necessary. If you are underway with a series, you will not need to re-start it if you have a longer interval between vaccines. You can resume the series once full services can be restored. If you have need assistance, please call (212) 443-1000.

Vaccination is an important personal and public health tool to prevent serious disease and even some cancers. It’s not only for kids—many University students need either an initial (primary) series of certain vaccines and/or boosters. The SHC is dedicated to helping you get the best protection by having vaccines available in most medical units for easy access.

Where to get them at SHC

  • Primary Care or Women’s Health visits– Even if you are coming in for something else, you can get a vaccine or two as needed at the same visit.
  • Allergy, Immunology and Travel visits– These may be visits more focused on multiple vaccines or for specialized vaccines as part of a travel visit. Appointments vary depending on what’s needed.


Travel vaccines are given as part of a comprehensive Travel Medicine visit to help you be as healthy as possible throughout your travels. You should schedule travel appointments at least 4-6 weeks before travel in most circumstances. 

Insurance Coverage

  • NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance covers all vaccines at no cost to you.
  • If you have alternate health insurance you might be able to receive vaccines at the SHC– check with your insurance carrier first to make sure you don’t get surprise billing for the vaccines, co-insurance, or deductibles.
