Penn State Abington Health & Wellness Center provides basic health care and wellness programs throughout the year. These free on-campus services are covered by student tuition.
Students requiring medical care are referred to an off-campus consulting physician affiliated with Abington Memorial Hospital.
The University also offers individual accident and health insurance at a minimal rate.
While the COVID-19 immunization is not required at this time, the University's return to in-person experiences and a sense of normalcy depends in part on our ability and willingness to be immunized.
Immunization Requirements (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
All incoming Penn State students must provide proof of immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella. In accordance with Pennsylvania state law, students living in on-campus housing must also provide proof of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine (Menveo, Menactra, MenQuadfi, MCV4), which protects against infections caused by serogroups A, C, W and Y. Visit the University Health Services website for details on required immunizations and the submission process.
To submit: log in to myUHS using your Penn State access credentials, enter your vaccines and upload image files of your official immunization records and, if applicable, any positive antibody titer blood test results.
Immunization requirements are applicable to all undergraduate and graduate students at University Park and Commonwealth Campuses excluding World Campus and Great Valley.
