Vaccines for students, faculty and staff in these high-risk groups will be administered during health centers normal business hours at all campuses. Students may also receive vaccines at the Campus Health Service clinic in the Sonora Residence Hall.   

ASU health officials will update messages when vaccine is available for the general university population.

Students, faculty and staff must show their ASU SunCard to receive a vaccine. There is a $10 fee for the vaccine for students. ABOR Aetna Student Health Insurance will cover the cost of the vaccination for those students.
