Map to the Health Center

What shots do you need to have on record at Mizzou to meet the requirements?

We want to see you happy and healthy. So while you are learning about campus, we are preparing for your visit.

Our immunization staff wants to make sure that you’re up-to-date on all of your immunizations so you can enjoy a healthy and happy first semester at Mizzou.

Being compliant with MU’s immunization policy is the first step toward a healthy and successful college career. In the Summer Welcome booklet, there was a typing error regarding the meningitis shot. The charge for this immunization is $155.

Students taking 7 credit hours or more are charged a student health fee each semester. This fee covers a wide range of visits to the Health Center:

  • Behavioral health consultation during medical visits
  • Timely appointments
  • Initial assessment and treatment visits (up to four if needed) to psychologists, social workers and psychiatrist
  • If more than four visits are needed, you will receive charges that may be filed to insurance
  • Stress reduction strategies including health coaching, skill-building classes, and mindfulness practices like yoga and meditation

 

How we help with chronic medical conditions:

Our goal is to maintain continuity of health care whenever possible, especially for your chronic medical conditions. To have a seamless transition to Mizzou, complete the following two steps:

  1. Make an appointment early in the semester to establish a relationship with one of our medical providers.

  2. Bring a letter and/or appropriate and recent medical records from your family physician. The letter should be addressed to Scott Henderson, MD, MU Student Health Center Medical Services Director, 1020 Hitt St., Columbia, MO 65201.

  3. University of Missouri students who receive allergy shots at home may continue their treatment without interruption by receiving allergy shots at the Student Health Center.

 

How we work with behavioral health concerns:

We are committed to quality care as informed by current best practices within behavioral health care. The Health Center works to ensure safe and appropriate treatment for individuals with ADHD. Read our policies.

Health care and insurance is complicated

Most people would agree the topics of insurance and health care are complicated. Each person is unique which makes the care and bills they recieve unique as well. It gets more complicated when the insurance holder is in one place and the student moves to Mizzou. Read our top tips to navigating health care while at Mizzou.
