Getting an annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. The more people who get vaccinated, the more people will be protected from flu, including older people, very young children, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications. 

Student Health Services has secured flu vaccine for the 2016-2017 season at this time!  Cost of the shot is $15 and will be charged to your student account.  Please call 507-537-7202 to schedule an appointment.

Check the calendar for clinic details and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates regarding office hours.  Conveniently located on campus: Bellows Academic 158

Health Services provides free and confidential services, including medical evaluations, for registered students.  There is a small fee for laboratory tests, certain medications, supplies, and sports physicals.  We also assist students with off-campus referrals as necessary.  In the interest of health and wellness for all SMSU students, staff and faculty, Health Services actively promotes a tobacco and vapor free environment.

Prolonged Illness

Students are advised to report pertinent medical facts to Health Services so instructors may be notified in cases of prolonged illness. We do not contact instructors for short-term illnesses or provide excuses for missed classes; it is the responsibility of the student to contact the instructors for assignments. Should a student find it necessary to withdraw from classes for medical reasons and they are unable to withdraw in person, they should contact the Advising Center for further details and implementation of the withdrawal.

Medical Records

If you need access to specific medical records you must submit a Consent to Release Health Information to SMSU Health Services. Immunization information submitted by the student cannot be duplicated or released as it is a 'self-report' form rather than an original document of the medical record completed within Health Services.
