ASU Health Services is here for you

Living away from home is all fun and games until someone sneezes on you. Even if you only catch a cold, taking care of yourself is no fun. There’s no one there to schedule your doctor's appointments, or tell you when to take your next dose of cough syrup.

While ASU Health Services won’t quite make you chicken noodle soup, they can help with most of what you need when you’re sick. And they offer online appointment scheduling through the patient portal, so there’s no need to panic. Check out six more ways ASU Health Services has your back.

Preventative care

Getting sick is the worst. That’s why staying up to date on preventative care is essential to completely avoid being sick. Sounds like a fever dream come true. Get started on the right foot by getting your flu shot. Walk-in appointments for flu shots are available at all ASU Health Services locations from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Your insurance may cover the service (learn more here), or ASU Health Services can bill your student account. This should be step one in your don’t-get-sick-this-semester plan.

Uncommon colds

There’s no cure for colds yet, but if you’re feeling sick, ASU Health Services can help. They’ll check if it’s more serious and recommend a treatment plan (staying in on doctor’s orders? Yes, please.) They can also help with services from lab tests and x-rays to allergy shots and general primary care.

Travel services

If you’re studying abroad or traveling out of the country, you may need vaccinations to protect you. Schedule an appointment well in advance with a travel nurse to determine the appropriate vaccinations for your trip. Learn more about health services travel help.

Sexual health

No matter what the results of the quiz are, you may still want to get tested. You can walk in for some STI tests, but others require an appointment.  Check out the full list of walk-in tests and get more information here.
