Welcome new and incoming students! We can't wait for you to be here. Here are the Penn10 (or top 10) things you need to do before your arrival on campus. You can find our insurance and immunization info here.

EpiPen-recall.png

There is a current recall on some EpiPen prescriptions within the US due to a device defect.  Please check your lot number here to see if you are impacted. For instructions on how to obtain a voucher code for a free replacement, as well as how to return the affected product, please call product recall specialist Stericycle at 877-650-3494.

Currently there is a national shortage of Yellow Fever vaccine due to an outbreak in Angola. The only US manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, has very tight restrictions on the vaccine supply. Currently SHS has no availability of  the Yellow Fever vaccine. Should we be able to obtain a limited supply, the vaccine will be given in strict accordance with CDC recommendations. Please call to discuss your travel plans should they be to areas where the vaccine is required.

Mumps_resize.jpg

We consistently monitor disease trends. There has been a reported increase in mumps cases in Pennsylvania. There is no current cause for concern at Penn, particularly because of our high vaccination rate. If you're interested in more information on mumps, please visit our disease updates.


Penn has a plethora of resources that are here to support your health, wellness and academic needs. Review the Wellness Guide created by students for student, or check out any of these offices below. Be healthy, Penn!
