Vaccinations

Columbia Health provides vaccination services for current students.  

Who can get vaccinations? How much do they cost?

Routine vaccines are available at no additional cost for students who have paid the Columbia Health and Related Services Fee (HRSF). For students who have not paid the HRSF, vaccines are still available for a fee. Visit the Service Fees page for pricing.

Travel vaccines are available at reduced cost to all students. Visit the Service Fees page for pricing. Please note that because these vaccines are optional, they are not covered by the HRSF or health insurance unless otherwise indicated.  

How do I get a vaccine?

Routine vaccines are walk-in at Medical Services in John Jay Hall, 4th Floor. You do not need an appointment. Check the sidebar on the right-hand side of this page for open hours at Medical Services.

Travel vaccines are by appointment only. Please email travelhealth@columbia.edu to request an appointment or visit our Travel Medicine page for more information about your health while traveling.
