Pregnant and nursing women should contact their health care providers before getting a vaccine or TB Test. The Student Health Clinic will be happy to provide a Tdap, flu vaccine or TB Test with your provider’s okay.

Students under the age of 18 require parental or legal guardian permission to obtain vaccines.

Need vaccines and TB tests for your health care program? Need a tetanus shot for that nasty cut? Want to avoid the flu this season and protect those around you? The Clinic has you covered!

The following vaccines are currently available in the Student Health Clinic:

  • Influenza (flu) for $12.00. The flu vaccine for the 2016-2017 season will be available when we reopen in September.
  • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) for $40.00
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) for $63.00

The Clinic also offers TB testing for $10.00. One-step and two-step TB tests are available. Please be aware that a TB placement has to be read 48-72 hours later. During the Summer Quarter, this means that we will be doing TB placements on Tuesdays with a follow-up read on Thursdays.

Feeling stressed? Overwhelmed? Anxious? Are you looking for help just to get through the week?

The Student Health Clinic has a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, who comes in once a week by appointment. She provides both mental health counseling, as well as medication management as needed.

To make an appointment, call the Clinic at (509) 533-8611, or come in and talk with anyone on our health care team.

The Clinic is also the home base for our Intern Therapists. If you are a SCC student, you can check out the Counseling page for more information on therapy services, or come into the Clinic to set up an appointment. If you are a SFCC student, you can call Cindy Havko at (509) 533-3202 to set up an appointment.

Think you need a prescription? Running low on an existing prescription?

The Student Health Clinic’s Nurse Practitioners are able to write prescriptions and refills after an exam assessment. The Clinic does not replace your primary care provider, but we are here to help out while you are in school by being accessible on campus, providing free clinic services, and the fact that you don’t need to make an appointment - just walk in during Clinic hours!

Our Nurse Practitioners are not on call during quarter breaks and holidays, so if you know you’re running low on a prescription, make sure you come in to the Clinic the week before we close to see the Nurse Practitioner. Check our General Information tab for closure dates.

If you’re coming in to the Clinic for the first time, just bring your student ID with you and we will have you fill out about ten minutes of paperwork before we have you see a Nurse Practitioner.
