All other injectable vaccinations are given by appointment. Some of the vaccines administered at the Yale Health Center are fee for service. See our vaccination charges.
NOTE:There is a national shortage of Shingrix® (shingles vaccine). At this time the supply of Shingrix is unpredictable. We did not receive the doses that we had been promised. We do expect additional supplies but delivery dates are not yet known. As supplies become available we will notify individuals who are due by email. We will prioritize those that are closest to the end of their six month window to receive their second dose.
The Immunization Department gives vaccinations to adult Yale Health members and all university students. Some vaccines are not given to certain age groups or to individuals with certain medical conditions.
The following vaccines can be given during walk-in hours:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Measles, Mumps, Rubella
- Meningococcal A
- Meningococcal B
- Polio (IPV)
- Varicella (chicken pox)
- Zostavax (shingles)
- PPD (tuberculosis skin test)
When your provider orders immunizations for you, you can come directly to the Immunization Department located on the 2nd floor of the Yale Health Center, during our walk-in hours.
You can still receive immunizations if you are ill with a mild cold. But, if you have a fever you should not receive immunizations.
Prior to all injections, the nurse will provide you with a vaccine information sheet for all the immunizations you are about to receive. The most common side effect is soreness at the site of the injection.
New incoming students have immunization requirements. Please review these requirements on the forms page.
