Welcome to Student Health Service and Campus Health
|Welcome new Penn students! Student Health Service has sent a letter to all new, incoming Penn students about the University's immunization requirements. All of the mailed information can be found on the Compliance section of this website. As a public health precaution, all required immunizations should be received prior to coming to campus. Thank you for helping us to keep our campus healthy. Go Quakers!|
The Mumps virus continues to be elevated in the Philadelphia area. Penn is encouraging the entire community to be hyper-vigilent with all disease prevention efforts.
If you're interested in more information on mumps, please visit our disease updates.
Recently, measles is being reported in the United States at unusually high rates. We have not had cases among Penn students, and our measles vaccination rates are very high. The people who are most at risk are those who are not fully immunized. In order to maintain the safety of our campus, new and returning students who are not compliant with the measles vaccine requirement must achieve compliance as soon as possible. To learn more about measles, please visit our disease updates.
Penn is tobacco free! To learn more about this important initiative, especially on how Penn students were involved, watch this video.

There is a national shortage of Yellow Fever vaccine. The only US manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, has very tight restrictions on the vaccine supply. Currently, SHS has limited availability of the Yellow Fever vaccine, which 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.
